Clarks Landing Gives Back to the Community

As part of our commitment to strengthen communities, Clarks Landing has been a proud organizer and supporter of community events and local charity.

CLARKS LANDING GROUP
COMMUNITY OUTREACH

 

Since the pandemic crisis began, the Clarks Landing Group has had one, steady response which is to ask the question, “How can we help?” Here’s where our wedding and boating teams lent their helping hands:

  • Our Jersey shore wedding venues, Clarks Landing Yacht Club in Point Pleasant and The Mill Lakeside Manor in Spring Lake Heights, challenged local residents and community partners to help fill a 23-foot BENETEAU Flyer boat with food by May 31st. With the help of caring donors, we hit our goal early. In total, we dropped off over 2,760 pounds of donated food to Fulfill, formerly the Food Bank of Ocean and Monmouth County.
  • We collected close to $1,000 in direct donations, also going to Fulfill to help local neighbors in need.
  • We collected food donations at our South Jersey wedding venues at Clarks Landing Yacht Club in Delran and The Bradford Estate in Hainesport, benefiting neighbors in need through the Food Bank of South Jersey.

FOOD DRIVE UPDATE!

 

Here’s Garrett, our Staff Supervisor at The Mill Lakeside Manor, dropping off another 954 lbs. of food donated to our food drive by our local community to Fulfill this week.

That brings the total count to over 2760 lbs. of donated food from our “Fill a Boat with Food” food drive challenge, to help our Ocean & Monmouth County neighbors through these tough times. ⁣

We’re grateful to our caring donor partners in our boating and wedding communities.

FILL A BOAT WITH FOOD!

 

After the pandemic began, Fulfill, our local food bank in Monmouth and Ocean Counties, saw a 40% increase in the demand for food at the Jersey Shore. We wanted to help our neighbors by running a different kind of food drive. Our local wedding venues and marina put out the challenge to residents, businesses, and community groups to help us “Fill a Boat with Food!” to donate to Fulfill.

We ran this food drive challenge through May 31, 2020 and collected food daily at two locations: Clarks Landing Yacht Club and Marina at 847 Arnold Avenue in Point Pleasant, NJ, and The Mill Lakeside Manor at 1309 Ocean Rd. in Spring Lake Heights, NJ.

We reached our goal early and continued to collect food beyond our target date. In total, we dropped off over 2,760 pounds of donated food to Fulfill!

THIS FOOD DRIVE IS NOW ENDED. THANK YOU TO ALL DONORS!

Like you, we ❤️ our communities so much & wanted to help in any way we could during the Covid-19 pandemic. We coordinated a Community Supply Drive to help two organizations take care of our neighbors in need – Oak Tree Lodge and Jersey Shore University Medical Center. We collected the following:

Flannel sheets or pillowcases (used for lining of masks), 1/4″ flat elastic, 100% cotton fabrics (used for front of masks), gallon size ziploc bags for delivering items, surgical masks, N95 masks, face shields, shoe covers, gloves & other protective items.
