An internal food drive held at the South Hadley Police Station and South Hadley Town hall netted 281 pounds of non-perishables to be donated to the Neighbors Helping Neighbors Food Pantry. A total of $520 was collected among the two staff groups to be donated to the pantry as well.
For each dollar raised, three meals are provided through the support of The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. The non-perishables will assist the pantry in its mission to provide between six to eight days of food each month for each household member in need.
Now more than ever the pantry needs donations of money, non-perishables and toiletries to help South Hadley and Granby families in need.
The pantry is located within the United Methodist Church at 30 Carew Street in South Hadley. Volunteers can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (413) 437-7593.
