The Rahway Police Department and Rahway PBA Local 31 are conducting a Holiday Food Drive from December 2nd to December 13th. Please consider donating canned goods or other non-perishable food items to help those less fortunate this holiday season. All donations will benefit the Rahway Food for Friends. Some of the most needed items include oatmeal, canned soup (broth based), peanut butter, jelly, canned vegetables, cereal, dry pasta, baby food, and diapers. Hygiene items such as shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, socks, and deodorant are also greatly appreciated.

Items can be dropped off at the Rahway Police Community Center, 52 E. Cherry Street, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or at the Rahway Police Department (main entrance) all other times. We will also accept new or gently used coats (at the E. Cherry Street location only) and NEW unwrapped toys. If you’re planning to attend the annual Rahway Tree Lighting Ceremony on November 29th, please consider donating an item at that time (a drop off bin will be located inside police headquarters lobby.) Please consider donating to this worthwhile cause, and helping those less fortunate during the holidays. If you need more information, please email us at
