Students are encouraged to contribute to SSA "Breakfast Days."

The Social Services Association of Ridgewood & Vicinity's food pantry needs help stocking its shelves, so it's time once again for Breakfast Days. The Community Center Advisory Board and SSA are asking elementary and middle school children to bring in a favorite breakfast item, such as pancake mix, cereal, juice, granola bars or coffee/tea, to school next week, between June 7 and June 11. There will be collection boxes at each school, and any donation (non-perishable) will be welcome. Cereal is one of the most popular items in the pantry, and they have a hard time keeping the popular brands on the shelves. Consider having your child bring in a box of his or her favorite brand, to share with kids who will appreciate it as much as they do.

Any questions, contact Social Services Association of Ridgewood & Vicinity at 201-444-2980.
