“The pandemic has impacted everyone in one way or another, including the shutdown of the music and entertainment industry,” says Stephen D’Amico of The Beat Drops. “Without the ability to travel the world and perform live in front of large crowds, we got creative about how we could still bring music to our audiences.”

Adam Saber of The Beat Drops says, “We wanted to do something unique to help those who are also impacted by COVID-19. I was born and raised in New Jersey, so teaming up with Fulfill to help them in their efforts to put food on the tables of those in my home state is the least we can do to give back. this time of need.
