First of all, thank you to everyone who participated in this chal-
lenge. The challenge was to bring items such as food, personal care items, baby care items, and cleaning products to be gathered each Sun- day during Lent. Through this challenge we collected 1,343 items plus a
lot of trial size personal care products. These many items will be going to New Beginnings, Carey House & the Salvation Army Food Pantry, Belknap House, Community Action Program Food Pantry, Saint Vincent DePaul Food Pantry, and the Vineyard Food Pantry and Soup Kitchen.
When we called to make arrangements everyone was very happy to receive not only food but the other items as well. Those who are on a food assistance program can’t buy things like Toilet Paper, Shampoo etc with that assistance so these items will be very helpful. The trial size products will be good for putting in bags that are then given to the homeless. So once again thank you, your donation will go a long way.
