On Wednesday, October 7, 2015, Mariner Finance employees, through Jeffie’s Choice donated to the Food Bank of South Jersey. This food bank offers cooking classes that feature affordable nutrition, meal plans for children to ensure they are fed during the non-school year months, and a Hope Mobile service to ensure they can supply food to those that may not have the ability to come into the food bank.
The Food Bank of South Jersey also features a helping hand to senior citizens. They do this by not only feeding senior citizens, but providing them with information on government programs like insurance and food stamps!
Don Terry stated, "Senior Manager of Corporate Relations Sabine Mehnert gave us an hour long tour, which was eye-opening and inspirational. She spoke about the determination that the food bank's 45 full-time employees and countless volunteers render in providing meals to 196,000 residents for four counties in South Jersey. We learned if you are ever donating to a food drive the top two items that they desire are peanut butter and tuna fish. We were told yesterday that peanut butter and tuna fish are the equivalent of gold in the food donation world!"
