Food Pantry

Hello Newcomers!

We had a wonderful Back-to-School drive at Shaw’s in Ashland on September 13th and were able to send 15-16 large boxes of much needed food/paper and personal items to the Holliston Food Pantry! I want to thank my daughter Tara, Mary Braun and her daughter Emma, Denise Bassett, Maryann Brown, Adie Kobbs and the Comis family for all of their valuable help! We saw many Newcomers folks shopping to help out too! Special thanks to Shaw’s and to Tom Dumas. Tom kindly picked up all of the boxes and helped with the list of food items needed. WELL DONE ALL!

We also have several members sign up for the Get Fresh program as well as Easter Baskets at the Activities Fair held on September 11th. If you are interested in either, please contact us to let us know! We can also answer any questions you might have on these programs!

We are going to start listing more than one product per month as the numbers and need at the Food Pantry are rising. Any help we can provide is so needed and so appreciated!

For October, we’d like to ask you to donate the following --

1.     Paper towels

2.     Progresso soup (other than chicken noodle)

3.     Snacks (granola bars/cookies/fruit snacks)

I am happy to drop off if folks cannot make it to the Pantry – please feel free to drop off anything at 562 Winter Street – I have boxes in my garage you can leave the items in.

Please contact the Food Pantry if you’d also like to donate financially or have any questions. http://www.hollistonpantryshelf.org . Please note that the Pantry supports 300 people in our town including many families with children – we can donate a few items each and it will make a HUGE difference to our community!

Thanks so much and please reach out with any questions or concerns and new ideas to support our wonderful Food Pantry!

Take care and enjoy October!

Thanks so much!
