SOUTH BRUNSWICK – A township resident hopes to raise at least $5,000 for the South Brunswick Food Pantry through the sale of #VikingStrong T-shirts.
“Our town has many sub-towns so I chose to base our shirts off our one high school that unifies the town. We are the South Brunswick Vikings. The shirts say #VikingStrong,” Erin Stern said.
Stern designed a shirt with Twisted Ink in Flemington. Since Stern grew up in Hillsborough and the Woodfern PTO there created shirts as a fundraiser, she contacted the company the PTO used and asked if she could do something similar.
Once she was set up, she said she contacted various South Brunswick groups, businesses, the library, etc., to spread the word.
Stern worked with the food pantry to identify how to send funds. For each shirt, 100% of the proceeds – or $10 – will be donated directly to the food pantry. Shipping is free.
In just two days, as of April 29, sales reached $930 in donations toward her goal of $5,000, Stern said. Sales will continue through May 17.

“In this unprecedented time, many people are home with no access to food. By filling our pantry we are ensuring our town will not go hungry,” she said.
