During the summer, church attendance wanes with the arrival of the beautiful weather, vacations, and being on that wonderful, slower summer schedule. Consequently, our Food Pantry donations dwindle, meaning less food and supplies to stock the shelves at the Westford & Lowell Food Pantries. 

This June, before you go away, why not drop off your Food Pantry donations for the entire summer? 

If we all make a note to ourselves to bring 12 items to church in the month of June, it will really make a big difference for the Open Pantry shelves in Westford & Lowell. They are always in need of non-perishables which could be considered a nutritious part of a meal, including, but not limited to:

Canned vegetables, canned fruits, fruit juices, canned beef, turkey or chicken, canned soups and stews, tuna, pasta, cereals, powdered milk, macaroni & cheese, rice, spaghetti sauce, peanut butter, and beans.

Thank you, and have a safe and wonderful summer!
