PEPPERELL -- Got Food? Some residents in Pepperell may be in need of it.
PACH Outreach Drive-Thru Food Drive will take place on Saturday, 9 a.m. to noon at the PACH Outreach Office and Pantry at 45 Main St. in Pepperell. Volunteers will give you a big smile and unload donations while you wait.
PACH is most in need of toilet paper, paper towels, canned fruit, juice, canned stews, pasta sauce, snacks, peanut butter and jelly, pasta, and any boxed items. Personal care items such as shampoo, soap, cleaning products, and child care items are always in need.
For those who are unable to make the food drive, donations can be brought to the local post office, Donelan's, or Main Street Bank during business hours.
PACH provides Pepperell residents in need with a caring, compassionate resource to meet their basic needs, including food, personal care items, and referrals to resources for additional assistance.
