GILMANTON FOOD PANTRY AND
THRIFT SHOP NEWS
The Gilmanton Food Pantry is now accepting applications for our winter clothing for children program, Thanksgiving and Christmas food baskets and our Adopt-A-Child program. If you or someone you know is in need of any of these services, please contact Bethany Lavin at 267-1934, Katie McEntee at the Gilmanton School at 364-5681 or stop into the Food Pantry Wednesdays from 3:00-6:00pm or Saturdays 10:00am-2:00pm.
We are currently collecting new and gently used winter clothing to distribute to the children in need in the Gilmanton Community. We are in need of winter jackets, snow pants and winter boots as well as hats and mittens. Please remember that some of our middle school aged students and our high school students take adult sizes!
SCOUTING FOR FOOD is Saturday, November 7, 2015. Don't forget to put out your food items for the scouts, the food pantry receives these items.
If you wish to make food donations for our holiday food baskets, you may bring the food to the pantry during business hours or drop them at the Gilmanton School, Academy building or the year round library. If you would like make a monetary donation for the holiday programs, please mail to P.O. Box 6, Gilmanton, NH or contact Bethany at 267-1934.
As a result of your generosity, 18 school kits were provided to children in need in Gilmanton. Thank you to all who donated items to complete these kits with required supplies for the children’s first day of school.
The Gilmanton Food Pantry would like to thank the Still Seeking Farm for their generous donations of fresh vegetables.
Due to an overwhelming response to our campaign to raise funds for a new refrigerator, the Gilmanton Food Pantry now has a new refrigerator. Thank you to everyone who donated and to all those who support our mission to be of assistance to members of our community. We are appreciative and grateful for all donations of food, money, clothing and time.
We welcome new volunteers. If you would like to consider giving a few hours a month of your time for this worthwhile endeavor, please contact Barbara Reed, Volunteer Coordinator at 556-9449.
