Recent Events

TASK —  Trenton Area Soup Kitchen

To start 2017 on the right foot, some of our corporate employees volunteered at TASK. As we arrived at 10:30, the line was already wrapping around the building with men, women and children who needed a meal. We were given our aprons, hairnets and name tags and quickly put to work serving a hot lunch on a cold day to over 300 recipients.


BMS Toy Drive

For the 4th year in a row, Essential (and Allan and Denise Weber) have held a Toy Drive for the pediatric patients at BMS Children’s Hospital. This year they were able to donate over 200 toys from donations from their office building and a “bring a toy” party that was held at the Weber home. The toys were brought to the hospital on December 23rd. As they were received, the head of the Child Life Team said “All 120 beds are filled this Christmas (mostly with children ages one to five). This will make their holiday so much happier.” They brought the unwrapped toys to their staging area where they would be inspected and wrapped. Thank you to all who donated and supported this cause!
