The RoseMark Group's First Annual Newark Turkey Drive

​Families this Thanksgiving will not go hungry thanks to the Brooklyn Net Star Kenneth Farried, Rosemark Group, Whole Foods Market, Mayor Ras Baraka, Councilwomen LaMonica Mclver & The Salvation Army. For the first year, we are ready to provide 60 hot meals for the youth program & turkeys and fixings for guests who might otherwise go without. Last year, more than 3,000 children and families were fed, once again Whole Foods Market has signed on again to donate the Thanksgiving feast.

Kenneth Faried, a native of Newark, said, “I’m happy to be back home and doing whatever needs to be done to support the community and give back.” Faried’s HAT Foundation procures athletic opportunities to those in need.

It's good to finally be home and able to give back to the community I was born and raised in.

Our mission is to give those less fortunate in our community healthy opportunities.”
