Fill the Firehouse
April 26 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Once again, the Firehouse will be hosting our Fill the Firehouse Event to benefit the First Parish of Newbury Food Pantry.
Drop in any time between 10am and 4pm on Wednesday, April 26 and help support our community members. The people the Food Pantry supports reside in Newburyport (50.5%), Newbury/Byfield (23.3%), Rowley (7.5%), Salisbury (9.9%), Ipswich (1.2%), Georgetown (2.2%) and West Newbury (.6%) as well as 4.9% in surrounding towns. 64.3% of all households who use the pantry have a senior living in their household.
The Firehouse has 191 Seats – our hope is to be able to place a bag in each seat.
The pantry relies on food and personal care donations from the community to supplement the food we purchase from the Greater Boston Food Bank. Help keep their shelves stocked by donating our most-needed items, which include:
- pasta or rice side dishes like Knorr, Rice Roni or Near East
- hearty ready to eat soups like Progresso, Campbell’s or Healthy Choice
- heat and serve meals such as beef stew or chili in cans or pouches
- toilet paper
- dish soap
