Aitken School Families Donate to Doorways


Doorways food pantry has just completed our twentieth year of serving Seekonk families in need, and as we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, the volunteers and clients of Doorways are thankful for the unwavering support of the community of Seekonk. For these many years, Doorways has been blessed by donations from the schools, the churches, and from civic organizations; from local businesses and from hundreds of individual residents. Food donations flow from our pantry to fill cupboards throughout our town; monetary donations allow Doorways to purchase thousands of pounds of fresh produce, meat and food staples from the Boston Food Bank every year. Last year, when the Covid lockdowns threatened the financial stability of the food pantry, the people of Seekonk, unbidden, showered us with hundreds of individual donations to keep us operating.

Over the last twenty years, hundreds of families have received necessary support, and over one and a half 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, and we ask God’s blessing on you and your families as we celebrate Thanksgiving.
