Support the Food Pantry
This is to remind people that the 23rd annual Shepherd’s Pantry holiday fundraiser is now going on.
The Shepherd’s Pantry serves around 90 families each Saturday between the hours of 9 and 11 a.m. at the Long Plain United Methodist Church, 1215 Main Street, Acushnet. However, at this time of year, the total number of families who come by looking for help increases dramatically.
This particular fund raiser receives monetary donations that the pantry’s dedicated volunteers use to restock the shelves of food items that are running low or are out of completely. With the pantry’s monthly expenditures that run in the thousands of dollars in food purchases, you can clearly see the need for this yearly venture.
In all of the years that this tradition has been continuing during both Thanksgiving and Christmas, thousands of dollars have been collected to augment the donated non-perishable food that is given out each week to the area’s needy families.
If folks would like to help, please send your tax-deductible contributions to the Shepherd’s Pantry, P.O. Box 760, Fairhaven, MA 02719.
Together, we can make a difference for the less fortunate.
Gerry Payette, Director/Shepherd’s Pantry
