Mr. Big’s Self Storage in Burlington, N.J., with the help of volunteers and church members, is opening a food pantry at its facility on Cadillac Road. Once all the necessary approvals are in place, the pantry will distribute food to needy families once per week. The self-storage facility owner, Ron Urban, has donated a 10-by-30 unit in which to store nonperishable items for disbursement.
To get the township’s blessing for the food pantry, Urban solicited assistance from the Grace Alliance Chapel. The chapel has taken the lead in setting up the pantry with help from Burlington Center Mall Ministry. Thus far, nearly a dozen volunteers have signed on to help.
The pantry’s directory, local resident Domenic Zulla, said they hope to distribute food every Wednesday from 9 to 11 a.m.
Mr. Big’s has supported other charitable causes over the years, including Marine Toys For Tots and the Red Cross.
