A Letter From Mayor McCormac

Dear Woodbridge Township Businesses,

The Woodbridge Township food pantries need your help! The economy has hurt many more Woodbridge Township families than ever before,which has substantially increased the demand for food supplies and donations at all of our food pantries.

This year, we’re again asking Woodbridge Township businesses to lend an even bigger, and more generous, hand. We are inviting you to participate in the 2012 Valentines Day “Have-a-Heart” Food Drive Challenge. We know that many Township businesses, retail outlets, food stores, food service and hospitality representatives, and corporate offices are already involved in assisting the community by providing non-perishable foods and donations on a regular basis. However, circumstances this year demand that we do just a little more. That is why we’re again issuing the “Have-a-Heart” Food Drive Challenge. We’re asking Township businesses, retail food service outlets, and corporate offices to donate 214 pounds of food or contribute $214 to assist our food pantries continue their work providing food and meals to less fortunate residents and the homeless. The 2012 challenge ends on Valentine’s Day - Feb. 14 (hence the 2/14 challenge.)

Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno and Mayor John E. McCormac join FedEx Ground officials to unveil the nation’s largest rooftop solar energy project at the FedEx Ground Distribution Center located in the Keasbey Industrial Park. The 2.42 megawatt solar power system covers approximately 3.3 acres of rooftop space with approximately 12,400 solar panels. The system is capable of producing 2.6 million kilowatt hours of electricity a year - enough for more than 250 households or about 30 percent of the FedEx hub’s annual energy needs. The combined environmental benefits (based on a projected annual reduction of approximately 1,867 metric tons of CO2 emissions) are equivalent to preserving 13 acres of forest or growing nearly 48,000 tree seedlings for ten years.
