This Martin Luther King Day - just a few days after NorthJersey.com and the Bergen Record highlighted Franciscan Charities and its extraordinary hard work during the pandemic - the news team from ABC7-New York visited our kitchen in Newark to see just what all the recognition was about! Watch the video clip, aired at 5:30 pm, as reporter Toni Yates speaks to our founder, Br. Paul Miller, board member and soup kitchen guru Melissa Hillier and board president Greg Langan about our persistence in continuing food service despite being locked out of our kitchen and dining room for months due to COVID.
Here at Franciscan Charities we're proud of the dedication of our staff, volunteers and board members and the ongoing generosity of our donors - large and small. Come join us in 2021 and help make a difference in the lives of the neediest among us!
