Thanks also to Jeff Cook of Sites & Signs for hosting this web site.
Our web site went down toward the end of April without our immediate knowledge because of domain name problems that we were unable to resolve until May 6th. Our PACH email was not accessible during that time. Our sincere apologies if you tried to contact us, make a donation, or find information through our site during that time. If you emailed us and got a bounce message or did not receive a response, please try again at your earliest convenience; we will respond as soon as possible. We invite you to explore our services, current events, news stories, and volunteer opportunities to see if there is a place for you to participate in PACH Outreach.
PACH provides Pepperell residents in need with a caring, compassionate resource to meet their basic needs, including food, personal care items, and referrals to resources for additional assistance.
If you need food or support to get through a difficult time, or if you know someone who does, please call or email PACH Outreach.
**NEW!** You can now donate funds to PACH with your credit card or Paypal account through our secure Paypal donations button.
Along with their regular mail deliveries and letter pick-ups, the Pepperell Post Office Mail Carriers cheerfully collected hundreds of food items left by residents in or on their mailboxes on Saturday, May 9th. At day's end, just over 140 bags of groceries were delivered to the PACH Pantry by Pepperell Carriers and PACH volunteers, most of those bags chock full of items to stock PACH's shelves for the summer. THANK YOU PEPPERELL CARRIERS and POST OFFICE for again making this growing annual drive a big success! Thanks also to all residents who donated to the drive and to Pantry Coordinator Clara Couture and the dedicated crew of volunteers who helped her sort all the groceries and stock them on the shelves during the following couple days. PACH couldn't do it without you!
When Pepperell Resident Janet Bohling was asked to tell us why she had decided to join the PACH Board of Directors, she responded as follows:
Herman Melville said, “We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men”. I have never believed those words more than I do at this stage of my life. I was fortunate to be raised in a household that instilled a strong commitment to giving and to serving with humility. Although my family lived in plenty, we were raised with the knowledge that selfishness divides people and creates enmity between those who live in abundance and those who are poor.... I, therefore, welcome opportunities to be giving.
I also believe we are all siblings with the same Father, and so I truly believe we are all connected. I also believe it is our duty, and our pleasure, to not only serve others but to love others. I believe loving others means to sacrifice for and seek only the highest good for another, even if nothing can be or will be given back; and that is my heart’s goal. It is with that attitude of heart that I desire to serve on the Board of Directors for PACH.
Janet has jumped into the role of Publicity Co-ordinator for PACH, a role the Board has been trying to fill for months. Our current flyers advertising the Post Office Stamp Out Hunger Drive and the upcoming Wine Tasting Fundraiser are products of her first efforts on PACH's behalf. Welcome to PACH, Janet, and Thank You for answering the call to serve!
Tickets are available for $30 at Pepperell Beverage, Bailey's Bar & Grille, North Middlesex Savings Bank, and from Eventbrite.com. Proceeds will be directed to PACH Outreach's building fund for the purpose of building or renovating a dedicated pantry space when the North Middlesex School District can no longer host us at our present location in Peter Fitzpatrick School.
