Organizations giving back to families in need

It’s the season to give thanks and to remember those who might need some help. Annual giving is taking place across the state as more and more people are in need during the COVID-19 pandemic. Hackensack University Medical Center is collecting food and clothes for a local food bank; Mark Sparta, the medical center’s president, said “The community was such great support with us back in March and April with the first round of COVID and it was our way of being able to give back.”

In Newark, hundreds of volunteers are helping to distribute close to 6,000 turkeys to families throughout the city. Correspondent Leah Mishkin reports.
