woburn food pantry

The Food Pantry located at 2 Merrimac Street is in need of assistance. If you are able to help out by picking up a few extra groceries in the next few weeks, that would be a great help.

The Woburn food pantry is running low on almost everything and they need your help! RE/MAX Legacy is doing their part by hosting a yard sale and food drive at their office on 65 Pleasant Street in Woburn on Saturday, September 29 (8am-12pm) with all proceeds going towards the purchasing of food to stock the pantry. If you would like to contribute to this cause, please come to the yard sale and purchase some items. You can also help by donating items to sell at the yard sale. RE/MAX Legacy will send someone to pick up the items from your residence if you are unable to drop them off. Donations of food to the pantry would also be appreciated, especially baked beans, soup, instant mashed potatoes, juice and dessert mixes. For drop off information or to request a pick up of donated items, contact Anthony Giglio, (781) 789-3940, anthonygiglio@yahoo.com.
