CFFC Wants You To Donate To The AC Rescue Mission's Second Annual Holiday Supplies Drive
Cage Fury Fighting Championships is teaming up with the Atlantic City Rescue Mission and the Sholler family to benefit individuals and families in need this holiday season.
Two Egg Harbor Township High school graduates, Dave Sholler and Zach Agostino, are once again helping the community come together with the goal of making a positive impact for those in need. The two South Jersey natives, have put together an amazing opportunity to give back this December.
The Holiday Supplies Drive will be held on Sunday Dec. 17th from 12pm to 4pm at Gregory's Restaurant and Bar in Somers Point, NJ.
"Gregory's has stepped up in a big way, as has Golden Nugget, Atlantic City and 97.3 ESPN," said Sholler, a Stockton University graduate who now serves as HBSE Vice President of Communications. "We're encouraging everyone to come out and donate anything folks can spare to help those in need this time of year."
Supplies needed include:
- Canned goods, cooking oils, powdered drink mixes, juices, baking supplies, coffee, sugar, tea, cereals and condiments
- Toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, bleach, multi-purpose spray, laundry detergent, disinfectant wipes and other personal hygiene products
- New or gently used clothing including winter hats, coats, boots, gloves and scarves
The Atlantic City Rescue Mission has been helping families and individuals in need since 1964 and despite their great efforts, there are still many residents looking to consistently obtain life’s essentials. The AC Rescue Mission needs the help of CFFC fans and Atlantic County residents alike so that they can continue to serve our community members battling obstacles such as homelessness or addiction.”
Those who donate will be eligible to win prizes such as an overnight stay and dinner at the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City, or tickets to the upcoming Philadelphia 76ers game.
"All donations no matter the size can make a great difference in the local community and for those in need," said Alliance MMA President Robert Haydak. "It’s an honor to once again work with the Sholler family and help in any way possible. I have no doubt our fans will rally around this worthwhile cause.”
So, after catching CFFC 69 at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa on Saturday Dec. 16th, make sure you do your part by gathering your donations and heading on over to Gregory's Restaurant and Bar for the Supplies Drive!
If you'd like to make a donation before the 17th, Gregory's has a collection bin and is now accepting all Supplies Drive items.
