Rehoboth Food Pantry News

Posted

It’s the time of year to give thanks and The Rehoboth Food Pantry is reaching out to so many of you! It has been a wonderful fall started by The St. Vincent DePaul group from Our Lady of Mount Carmel generously purchasing a large variety of needed food supplies.

It continued with food donations collected at the Rehoboth Senior Citizens Club Craft Fair and a very generous monetary donation from the club. The Rehoboth Town Events group made the entry fee for the Fall Home Decorating Event by donations to our food pantry.

The town gave us permission to collect food donations at the Town Meeting. Our clients were able to enjoy just picked Macoun apples from Barbara and Bob ‘s orchard. Thank you!! As Thanksgiving approached, friends who donated turkeys, pies and rolls for our clients once again contacted us!

Food donations have been steadily coming to all our drop off locations. Personal Best ran a very successful food drive throughout the month.

The employees at the Rehoboth Post Office once again collected food and “turkey money” donations for our Thanksgiving bags.

Our schools have responded very generously also! The Student Government at DR ran a very successful food drive and dated many of the food items, which cut our time sorting and shelving of items in half! (Thanks, Caraline for your date while you wait for a suggestion!!) The D L Beckwith Middle school is currently wrapping up a food drive and we will be receiving it shortly. We will be receiving food donations from Palmer River also!

Well done to all of you!! A huge thank you to Nicole and Justin who recently moved to Rehoboth and ran a neighborhood food drive for the Rehoboth Food Pantry continuing their effort to teach their son about helping others while giving him something to look forward to each year. What a great idea! Welcome to Rehoboth!!

We have also received a large donation of fresh produce which was greatly appreciated by our clients!
Thank you to each and every one of you who continue to support the Rehoboth Food Pantry so that we can feed our Rehoboth neighbors in need. I also need to thank so many of you who volunteer at the pantry. I couldn’t do it without all of you. I am so very blessed and thankful!
