News & Events

  • BAILEY'S HOSTS PACH OUTREACH'S SECOND ANNUAL WINE & PAIRING FUNDRAISER
  • Many PACH supporters gathered in and around the solariam at Bailey's Bar & Grille in Townsend on Monday, June 22, to get to know each other, chat, and enjoy samples of four different wines and four paired appetizers during PACH Outreach's 2nd annual Wine & Pairings fundraiser. The event was organized by Bailey's owner Pam Mariano, and appetizers were prepared by Bailey's chef. Local musician Tim Rollo donated his time to provide background music for the event. Tickets were sold for $30 at the door and ahead of time at several Pepperell businesses, with all proceeds going into PACH Outreach's Building Fund. A great time was had by all! Many thanks go to Pam Mariano, Bailey's chef and servers, and Tim Rollo for making the fundraiser a big success.

  • ANNUAL LETTER CARRIERS' FOOD DRIVE DELIVERS 140 BAGS OF GROCERIES TO PACH
  • Along with their regular mail deliveries and letter pick-ups, the Pepperell Post Office Mail Carriers cheerfully collected hundreds of food items left by residents in or on their mailboxes on Saturday, May 9th. At day's end, just over 140 bags of groceries were delivered to the PACH Pantry by Pepperell Carriers and PACH volunteers, most of those bags chock full of items to stock PACH's shelves for the summer. THANK YOU PEPPERELL CARRIERS and POST OFFICE for again making this growing annual drive a big success! Thanks also to all residents who donated to the drive and to Pantry Coordinator Clara Couture and the dedicated crew of volunteers who helped her sort all the groceries and stock them on the shelves during the following couple days. PACH couldn't do it without you!

  • BAILEY'S HOSTS PACH OUTREACH'S SECOND ANNUAL WINE & PAIRING FUNDRAISER
  • Many PACH supporters gathered in and around the solariam at Bailey's Bar & Grille in Townsend on Monday, June 22, to get to know each other, chat, and enjoy samples of four different wines and four paired appetizers during PACH Outreach's 2nd annual Wine & Pairings fundraiser. The wines were provided by Pepperell Beverage and the delicious appetizers by Bailey's chef. Tickets for the event were sold for $30 at the door and ahead of time at several Pepperell businesses, with all proceeds going into PACH Outreach's Building Fund to build or renovate dedicated space for the pantry when North Middlesex School District can no longer host PACH at its current home in the Peter Fitzpatrick School. A great time was had by all!

  • PACH WELCOMES JANET BOHLING TO PACH BOARD OF DIRECTORS
  • When Pepperell Resident Janet Bohling was asked to tell us why she had decided to join the PACH Board of Directors, she quoted Herman Melville in explaining her commitment to service for others and her desire to help PACH. See more of her story on our News page.

Join PACH Outreach at Pepperell's 4th of July Parade
Whether you're a PACH volunteer who wishes to march with PACH or an interested citizen who wishes to support the pantry, please join PACH board members and volunteers for their annual Shopping Cart March in Pepperell's 4th of July parade on Saturday, July 4th. Bring your unexpired canned or boxed food items to the parade to put in our shopping carts as we push them along the parade route, or place your monetary donations in containers carried by PACH volunteers.

**Volunteers Sorely Needed**

  • Office Coordinator(s) to lead weekly office operations and file monthly reports with partner agencies and our Board of Directors. Responsibilities may be shared by two individuals. See our Volunteer page for details.
  • Drivers & Manpower needed midday on the 2nd Tuesday of every month for Greater Boston Food Bank delivery from Ayer to Pepperell. See our Volunteer page for details.
  • Food Shopper to go to the Merrimack Valley Food Bank in Lowell every Thursday morning to purchase stock for the pantry and deliver to PACH (approx. 3 hours weekly). Please call or email PACH to get details from our Office Manager or Pantry Coordinator.
  • Food Drive Coordinator to serve as liaison between PACH Outreach and local schools, churches, businesses, and community organization that hold food drives to stock our pantry. See our Volunteer page for details.
  • Fundraising Committee Members: PACH is growing enough to need a couple regular fundraisers each year to maintain our treasury at a level commensurate with the growing demand for services. We would like to establish a committee devoted to fundraising, which would plan and coordinate one or two fundraisers each year. See our Volunteer page for details.
  • Occasional Special Event Helpers: PACH would like to expand our email list of people willing to help periodically with food drives, special events, and fundraisers. If you would like to help PACH but don't have time to take on a regular volunteer position, please call or email PACH to add your name to our email list so we can notify you of one-shot volunteer opportunities that you may be able to fill.
