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.
If you need food or support to get through a difficult time, or if you know someone who does, please call or email PACH Outreach.
For five consecutive Sundays in July and August, the 9-to-14-year-old members of the Stars & Stripes Equestrian 4-H club held a food drive at Donelan's of Pepperell, collecting 213 pounds of food for PACH. The children come from Pepperell and many surrounding communities, and they held their first food drive for PACH last fall, as a community service project. "The kids had such a wonderful time they decided to do it again this summer," said club leader Tammy Pelrine. THANK YOU Stars & Stripes Equestrians!
This August the Pepperell Christian Fellowship delivered five shopping carts to PACH, filled with 550 food items collected by the church's Vacation Bible School students. Pastor Stephen Witmer said the students found it "a huge joy to wheel those carts down Main Street and present them to PACH volunteers." With three tables set up at the town's 4th of July celebration, church members sold beaded jewelry handcrafted in by African grandmothers, benefitting both PACH and women and children of Africa. The church raised $500 for PACH from that fundraiser. A HUGE thanks goes to the Christian Fellowship congregation for their very successful and helpful endeavors!
PACH Volunteers, including several members of North Middleses High School's Service Learning Groups, marched again this year in Pepperell's Annual 4th of July Parade on Saturday, July 5, 2014. As in previous years, PACH volunteers drove shopping carts along the parade route, collecting food donations for the pantry, following the PACH "float". Dozens of residents and parade-watchers had brought non-perishable food donations to add to our shopping carts. Thanks to all who helped make this annual 4th of July Food Drive a success!
Gathering at Dolce Italian Grille on Monday, June 23, over 65 donors enjoyed a generous meal of diverse and hearty appetizers prepared by Dolce's Chef Richard, each paired with a fine wine supplied by Randy Brubaker of Pepperell Beverage. Organized for PACH by Pamela Mariano and Christina Spallone of Townsend's Baileys on the Green and Dolce's, the event raised over $1100 to kickstart a Building Fund for PACH Outreach through sales of tickets to supporters. Anticipating the future loss of its space in the Peter Fitzpatrick School, PACH Outreach's Board of Directors established this fund to rent, renovate, or build its own pantry space. See the full story on our News page.
Drive to PACH with your donations of unexpired canned and dry goods, personal care items such as toothpaste and soap, and household paper products
such as toilet paper, paper towels, and kleenex. Our crew of PACH volunteers will be at the circular drive in front of the building to unload your car and bring your donations into the pantry. Easy in, easy out, and a boon to PACH!
If you'd like to help out at the drive, please email or call the pantry to sign on.
Please call or email PACH for details about these positions.
