BURLINGTON, N.J. -- Tuscan® DairyPure® is partnering with The Birthday Party Project™ to share the Tuscan Dairy Farms' 100th birthday with homeless youth in the New York City boroughs and New Jersey.

Since 1918, when Tuscan began delivering door-to-door in New Jersey's Essex and Union Counties, families have trusted the fresh quality and flavor of Tuscan products. Today, Tuscan DairyPure milk comes from local farms throughout New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Tuscan DairyPure will host an all-day Gallons of Goodness fundraiser for The Birthday Party Project on Aug. 11 at retailers throughout the New York/New Jersey metro area. On that day, Tuscan DairyPure will donate $1.00 for every gallon of milk purchased at participating stores, up to $10,000.

Additionally, these stores will provide customers with samples of milk and cake or cupcakes from 10:00 a.m. to noon on Aug. 11
