Hannah’s Herd 5K Collects for Doorways


Hannah Baldassi is a runner. She is a member of the Seekonk High School cross-country team and has participated in charity road races for years. But when Covid turned all the road races into virtual events, she decided to create her own event for the benefit of the Doorways food pantry and Save the Bay. Hannah and her family organized the event and collected food to help support local families in a time of food uncertainty.

We at Doorways Food Pantry would like to extend a heartfelt "thank you" to the entire community of Seekonk who have sustained the food pantry these past 2+ years. Not a week goes by that a car does not pull up to our North School location to drop off donations from individual families; sometimes these donations are quite large. Always they are given with love and concern for our neighbors in need. Schools, churches and civic organizations have held food drives on our behalf. We are humbled by your support.

Today, the assistance provided by a food pantry is more important than ever, as the cost of gasoline, fuel oil, and groceries continues to increase. Over seventy families rely on Doorways on a regular basis, and Doorways, in turn, relies on people like you. Thank you.
