West Chelmsford is having its fall food in-gathering for the
Open Pantry of Greater Lowell On Sunday, September 30.
The Pantry provides short-term food assistance to those in need who reside in the Greater Lowell area. The reasons for need are numerous, but for many persons it is a choice between food, heat or medications.
Over 1,500 people are served each month. More than 1/3 of those we help are children. Assistance is offered to individuals and families without any discrimination based on race, creed, or country of origin.
The Open Pantry is always in need of non-perishables which could be considered a nutritious part of a meal. These include: 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. In addition, they distribute toiletries including: soap, toilet paper, tissues, paper towels, toothpaste, and shampoo. At times, they may also provide diapers, wipes, baby formula, baby food, and cat/dog food when available.

They appreciate any of these items and also monetary donations. Please, if you choose to give a monetary donation, write the check to WCUMC with a notation that it is for the Open Pantry.
