Thanksgiving Is For Sharing

November 22, 2021

"Thanksgiving is for sharing," stated Dave Cole, the MCMUA's Supervisor of Curbside Recycling. Last November, in honor of the holiday, Dave, his wife, Laura, daughter, Shelby, and son, Jahad, along with friends and family, donated, cooked, packaged, and delivered 50 delicious meals to deserving residents of Newark.

The family boxed up a traditional Thanksgiving feast of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and rolls, and then drove to Newark from Morris County, where they live. They also distributed utensils, hand sanitizers, and face masks. Dave's philosophy is simple, "Our family has been blessed and we want to give back when we can." He continued, "Last year we received such a great response from the residents and thoroughly enjoyed working together as a family that we hope to do this again at Christmas."

The MCMUA congratulates the Cole family for their generosity and kindness to others.
