The Council of Social Concern Food Pantry is asking for donations of perishable and non-perishable food items to help stock the shelves.

Food donations are typically at the lowest point of the year during the summer months. With schools closed, church attendance down, businesses short-staffed and individuals and families in vacation mode, it is understandable that donations would be down. However, this makes it difficult to keep the shelves stocked for those who are struggling and depending on the Food Pantry to help feed their families. Right now, inventory is extremely low and the shelves are almost empty. Please donate today and help fill the shelves!

The North Suburban YMCA is teaming up with other Greater Boston YMCAs, the City of Boston, and the Greater Boston Food Bank to help fight against hunger, while improving the health of the Woburn community. The "Get Fit, Give Back" food drive is taking place from now until November 11th. By donating 5 non-perishable cans of food at any YMCA of Greater Boston location, the $25-50 joiner feed is waived!
