PHOTO: Lakewood resident rents refrigerated truck for neighbors to store food for duration of power outage

With electricity not expected to be restored for several days in Lakewood, one resident decided to rent a refrigerated truck to help neighbors keep their perishable foods intact.

The 24-foot truck has been parked in front of 1666 Hidden Lane, in Raintree.

Families are welcome to bring labeled boxes to have them placed on the truck.

(There is no charge to store your food in the truck, though contributions are welcome.)

  2. How Amazing! Thank you! Have to let you know I was in A non Jewish store and saw an older gentile buying cases of water like 6. And couldn’t help but overhear him telling a worker why he was buying so much water. He told the worker he was buying water for the Orthodox Jews to have on Shabbos because the weather was going to be over 100 degrees. Look how amazing people are.
