Newton food pantry needs volunteers


Dear Friends,

The Newton Food Pantry is in great need of additional volunteers on Monday mornings to help us unload and store food that is delivered to our pantry from the food bank.
The work only takes about an hour of time.  However, the exact time when we need volunteers at the pantry to do this work changes from week to week depending upon the food bank schedule.  Typically we need people for an hour, sometime between 9am and 11:30, and we send out an email a few days in advance advising volunteers of the time.

Unloading and storing inventory is crucial to our pantry operations and our core group on Mondays is small and desperate for help.

I’d greatly appreciate it if you would post this request for volunteers in your newsletters, and if you know of anyone who can help us, please have them contact me at newtonfoodpantry@gmail.com.

As you know, the Newton Food Pantry is an all volunteer non-profit that has been providing food for over 30 years to those in our community who experience food insecurity.  We presently provide a 5+ day supply of non-perishable and healthy fresh food to approximately 600 Newton residents each month.  But we need your help in order to continue to serve our neighbors in need.

Thank you so much for your support.

 

Best,
Tracie Longman

President
