Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Food Drive to Support Doorways


Our Lady of Mt Carmel Church conducted a food drive in April for the benefit of the food pantries in Seekonk and Rehoboth. Their efforts were blessed with success, and hundreds of pounds of food was collected. Their donation to Doorways supports many Seekonk residents in need of a helping hand, and the food thus provided is filling cupboards of homes throughout Seekonk this very day. It is not only the quantity of food that is so welcome, but also the variety afforded by a food drive. “It’s such a joy to our shoppers to have a choice in the brands and flavors of the food we provide” said Diane Fox of Doorways. “At one point last summer, our cereal choices were corn flakes in a box or cornflakes in a bag. That was all we had.” When people participate in a food drive, it really makes a difference.

This past November, Doorways celebrated twenty years of assisting the disadvantaged in our community. Over the years, over seven hundred families have received necessary support, and almost two million pounds of food has been distributed – all at no cost to our clients, and all made possible by the generosity of the people of Seekonk. Our gratitude is boundless - we are humbled by your support, awed by your generosity, and hopeful for the future. We give thanks for all you do.
