PACH Outreach will participate again this year in Pepperell's 4th of July Parade. PACH volunteers will push Donelan's grocery carts along the parade route and will walk among parade watchers with containers to collect cash donations for the PACH Pantry. We invite everyone in our community to join us at our wonderful annual parade, and please bring unexpired, non-perishable groceries to help us fill our shopping carts. Donated groceries and personal care items will help stock the pantry for the summer so we can help our neighbors stock their kitchens. If you would like to march in the parade with PACH to support our efforts, please call or email the PACH Office.
Approximately 252 bags of food, personal care items, and paper goods were collected for PACH during the Post Office's annual Stamp Out Hunger Drive on Saturday May 11th. MANY THANKS to the Pepperell Rural Letter Carriers for collecting donations from our neighbors on their routes; to Postmaster Jacqueline Verheyen and the Pepperell Post Office Staff for organizing this event and helping PACH load and deliver food from the Post Office to the pantry; and to the many PACH volunteers who transported, unloaded, and sorted and shelved the donations. Thanks also to the generous people of Pepperell who contributed food and other items through this drive.
Thanks also to Scoutmaster Shawn Marr and the Scouts of Cub Scout Pack 55 and their families for their extremely successful "2000 Pounds of Food" Drive for PACH Outreach. Over the course of several weeks of collecting, they met their goal and delivered hundreds of items to the Food Pantry in June!
PACH also thanks the NMRHS Honor Society for their collection of items for PACH at the May 16th High School Band Concert, to the fine musicians who entertained attendees, and to all members of the community who brought donations for PACH to the concert.
