Lunch Break Holiday Gift Card Drive

By Lori Draz

As you begin your holiday gift buying, Lunch Break would like to ask you to pick up an extra gift card or two to donate to the Lunch Break Holiday Gift Card Program, benefitting financially insecure families.

Instead of the annual toy drive, the resource center is accepting monetary donations online as well as gift cards mailed or delivered to headquarters by Tuesday, Dec. 7, with the goal of sponsoring 1,300 families with $75 in gift cards for each.

If you would like to donate in person, visit Lunch Break’s headquarter at 121 Drs. James Parker Blvd. in Red Bank from 10 am to 2 pm Monday to Friday, and from 9 am to noon on Saturdays, and ask for Melia or Sharda.

You can also make an online donation at and click Holiday Gift Cards under “Special Purpose.”

To create a neighborhood, school or business gift card drive, contact Program Director Sharda Jetwani Love at for details.
