Taste of the Town
The annual Taste of the Town is held every year in the Hammonton High School gymnasium. About two dozen local restaurants serve their signature dishes. The event also includes student entertainment and a Chinese auction.
Recycling Central is held every September at the Our Lady of Mount Carmel grounds at Third and French streets. A mobile paper shredding unit will be onsite to provide safe, secure shredding of documents. Residents and businesses are encouraged to shred unwanted documents. Receipts for tax purposes will be provided. Several other community organizations — including the Hammonton Lions Club, the Atlantic County Library System’s Hammonton Branch, Migrant Worker Outreach and Hammonton High School’s Green Earth Club — participate in the event, held in conjunction with Hammonton’s Green Weekend.
The foundation’s “Blueberry Bush” project has been one of its top fundraisers, The bush replica—mounted on a wall in the high school—is made of metal and wood. All the berry clusters, which were $300 each, have been purchased and only 60 leaves and a limited number of rocks remain.
Leaves are $150 each; branches are $500; small rocks, $1,000 and large rocks, $2,000. Donors can specify which school their gift goes to as part of a grant.
