Moriarty High School JROTC—led by First Sgt. Jesse Lopez with Cadets Jacob Hudson, Samuel Sanchez and Andrea Webb shown here—ran a food drive at the high school, delivering the donations to Bethel Community Storehouse last week. They also collected money which made it possible to purchase toys that were also donated to Bethel for the holiday season. Photo by Angelina Rose Lane.
