Mint Advertising, a full-service advertising agency with its main headquarters in Clinton, N.J. and a satellite office in Allentown, Pa., collected and donated nearly 150 pounds of nonperishable food last week to the nonprofit Open Cupboard Food Pantry in downtown Clinton, N.J.
“We’re proud our employees got behind this idea and chose to donate,” says Mint Chief Creative Officer Al Navarro. “Donations to food banks and pantries tend to drop off significantly after Thanksgiving and the holidays, so we figured a food collection this time of the year would really help.”
The ad agency’s donation to the food pantry is one of several community efforts it has planned in 2017 to commemorate its milestone 15th anniversary. The 22-person business began in 2002 in Branchburg, N.J. and relocated to Clinton in 2012.
“We love being in Clinton and have had the pleasure of meeting some of the great organizations here in town, like the folks at the Red Mill,” explains Mint CEO Eric Schoenfeld. “As a way to celebrate our 15th anniversary, we’re introducing ourselves to more local groups — like the Clinton police and fire departments — to see how we might be able to lend them a hand.”
The Open Cupboard Food Pantry is located at 37 Old Highway 22, in Clinton, N.J.
