The IFP, which serves Morris County, NJ, provides emergency and supplemental food to area residents during time of need and last year distributed almost a million pounds of food to more than 10,000 people.   Moretrench is a longtime supporter of the IFP and Premier Sponsor for this year’s Gala.  Over the years, employees have conducted numerous food drives; volunteered regularly with the Thanksgiving program; participated in the Kitchen to Table program by cooking meals for homebound individuals; and provided more than $50,000 in financial support through sponsorship, employee contributions and donations in lieu of client holiday gifts. Eighteen Moretrench employees attended the event, which raised almost $200,000 through sponsorships, ticket purchase, donations, and events held throughout the evening, including raffles and a silent auction.

“Moretrench has always embodied a culture of community service,” notes Corwin.  “There are those in our community who are employed and work very hard yet still can’t make ends meet.  We at Moretrench try to give the extra support they need to make it.”
