Andrew and Andrea Santamaria are Verona residents and the owners of the new Liberty Tax Service franchise in Montclair. They are launching a food drive–dubbed “Soup or Bowl”– to benefit the Human Needs Food Pantry, and it could also benefit you.
From now through February 4, if you bring in five or more non-perishable food donations such as canned food and cereal, Liberty Tax Service will give you a coupon for $20 off your tax preparation fees. You can also complete an entry form to win a catered “Soup or Bowl” party for 10. Liberty will draw one winner at 4 p.m. on Saturday, February 4. On that day, there will also be some family fun and entertainment at Liberty’s office from noon to 4 p.m.
“There’s no Super Bowl hype to this chance,” says Andrew Santamaria, owner of Liberty Tax Service. “Anyone can donate and save or enter to win. The odds are pretty good.”
The Human Needs Food Pantry provides food, clothing and other services to people in need who live in Montclair, Verona and other neighboring communities. That includes more than over 2,000 bags of groceries each month. The Santamaria’s Liberty Tax Service office is located at 295 Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair, which is just before Grove Street as you are heading east.
