July Results

On the five Thursdays that the pantry was open this July we provided 3,780 bags of groceries to help a total of 945 families ... in those households there were 818 children under the age of 18. During June we also served more than 850 meals.

Every item donated goes to help someone. A can of tuna, a jar of peanut butter or a can of soup can make the difference between someone going to bed hungry or not. Thank you for each and every donation.

Providing groceries and lunches requires many volunteers. Perhaps you would like to help. If so please contact Paula Briden, Food Pantry Coordinator, by phone at 508-993-1691 or by email at .
