State LGBTQ leaders are carrying out a day of service in honor of the late LGBTQ activist Babs Siperstein.

The New Jersey LGBT Chamber of Commerce is partnering with Toni’s Kitchen and the Pride Network to attempt to combat food insecurity in Montclair.

“Babs’s humble commitment to public service is a model for all people who strive to empower others and serve with purpose in the world. The effects of Babs’s legacy will be felt for generations; and, going forward, we hope to honor her memory by serving those in need of compassion in action,” Pride Network Executive Director Jacob Rudolph said.

The day of service will take place on Feb. 24.

“By coordinating this day of service with The Pride Network, we are providing the opportunity for our members and community to engage and give back on a local level,” said  NJ LGBT Chamber of Commerce Board Member, Stephen Blazejewski. “Toni’s Kitchen’s Backpack Program provides weekly backpacks filled with healthy non-perishables to local children in need, and we can all play a part in supporting vulnerable youth.”
