LINCROFT, NJ –Christian Brothers Academy (CBA) was presented with the Future Charitable Leaders Award by Lunch Break at the organization's annual gala at the Navasink Country Club on October 19.

The prestigious recognition honors the decades of support of the CBA community to the worthy initiatives of LunchBreak in Red Bank. CBA students, faculty, and many other members of the school family have volunteered their time at Lunch Break for more than 30 years by collecting and distributing food and clothing to those in need.

"Year after year we witness boys enter CBA and four years later, leave as exceptional young men," shared Lunch Break in the gala program. "Their strong tradition of compassion and service to others and desire to work as a team to help the less fortunate has resulted in a community partnership that knows no bounds. There is so much good that happens at CBA, that sometimes we are overwhelmed by their kindness and generosity and it is no wonder the amazing achievements of their students and their commitment to others."
