Can you spare an hour once or twice a month to help out your neighbors in need?
If so, the Norwood Food Pantry would like to talk to you. The pantry is looking for volunteers to deliver bags of groceries Saturday mornings between 9:30 and 10:30. These bags go to people with an illness or disability that prevents them from coming to the pantry to pick up the food themselves.
The bags have already been prepared by other volunteers. And there are plenty of youth volunteers to help you load up your vehicle.
“This is one volunteer opportunity that doesn’t require a large time commitment,” says Ruth Taeger, Executive Director of the pantry. “Deliveries hardly ever take over an hour. Yet they’re vitally important – and deeply appreciated by all those folks who might not otherwise be able to get the food they so urgently need.”
If you think you might be able to help, please call Barbara at 781-762-7053 to volunteer or find out more. Or visit the pantry, which is located in the basement of Grace Episcopal Church at 150 Chapel Street, Saturday mornings between 8:20 and 11 AM to discuss the possibilities...or to make a donation of non-perishable food.
