The Morris County Sheriff’s Office, in conjunction with the Sheriffs’
Association of New Jersey and the United States Marshal’s Office for the District of New Jersey, is conducting a week-long joint Food Bank Drive culminating on Monday, Dec. 21.

The Food Drive is in honor of Monmouth County Sheriff Kim Guadagno who has been elected Lt. Governor of New Jersey. At the most recent Sheriffs’ Association meeting, Guadagno announced that instead of an inaugural ball for the new governor in January, a dinner will be held with half the cost of each ticket to be donated to a food bank. It is in this spirit of giving back that week-long food drive is being conducted.

Non-perishable food items may be brought to the Morris County Courthouse on Washington Street in Morristown or to the county Administration and Records Building on Court Street in Morristown and placed in receptacles in the lobby of each building.
