This year Central will be serving our community in the Juneteenth Celebration that will take place from June 18-20th in Trenton NJ. Juneteenth is a holiday celebrating the emancipation of those who had been enslaved in the United States. It was commemorated on the anniversary date of the June 19, 1865, when the announcement by Union Army General Gordon Granger, proclaiming freedom from slavery in Texas. We will be providing bottled water for over 200 volunteers and delivering lunches. To make this happen, we need you to drop off cases of water at Central between May 31 and June 16th. We are also in need of volunteers to deliver the water to the volunteers.
