BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — The Black Rock Food Pantry — and the hundreds of families it serves — had much to be thankful for this holiday season.

In the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, the Princeton Street pantry received large food donations from Bridgeport’s St. Ann Church, Unquowa School in Fairfield and the Torch Club of Wakeman Boys & Girls Club.

Employees of J.C. Penney in Trumbull also took up a collection and Ray Corby of the S.S. Norden Club held a benefit dinner, raising $4,000.

Food pantry volunteers were able to supply turkey dinner with all the trimmings for 325 families this Thanksgiving.

Tree of Hope, another fundraiser for the pantry, will be held at 6 p.m., Friday, Dec. 1, at the Norden Club, 4 Seabright Ave.
