November 15th - 21st
National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week
We are partnering with Margaret's Pantry & The Greater Holyoke Chamber of Commerce to do our part in knocking out hunger during the Thanksgiving holiday.
We will be holding a food drive from Monday November 16th - Friday November 20th right here at our office in Holyoke from 9am-4pm each day. All of the donated goods will be given to Margaret's pantry.
Margaret's Pantry, a division the Providence Ministries for the needy, is a full service food pantry that has provided food to residents of the greater Holyoke area for over 30 years. Presently the pantry provides food to upward of 180 families each month and approximately 72,000 meals a year are distributed to the needy in the community.
During this time of year, the pantry is looking for non perishables such as canned goods like soups, stews, veggies, pasta and sauce...Baking mixes for the holidays, 'fun' items like poptarts, granola bars, and princess/super hero etc. themed items like soup that kids may not typically have access to.
We invite you to join us in supporting this great cause that affects a large group of people within our own communities. This food drive is certainly open to the public - we encourage you to invite friends and family to participate. We look forward to seeing you, and together supporting a great cause and a local non-profit.
