PACH Outreach help is available to all Pepperell residents in need, including seniors, families, and single adults, whether unemployed or under-employed.
Thank you to the late Mauricio Puente, Sr. for his artwork for the PACH logo.

Under the leadership of member Laurel Haines, the North Middlesex National Honor Society will conduct a food drive to benefit PACH at the High School's annual Band and Chorus concert on Thursday, May 16 at 7:00 p.m. This popular event is a great opportunity for all school district residents to see the strong talent that comes out of our school band and music programs. The Honor Society invites all attendees to bring an unexpired canned or dry good to the concert to contribute to their food drive to help stock the pantry for the summer.
PACH Outreach will participate again this year in Pepperell's 4th of July Parade. PACH volunteers will push Donelan's grocery carts along the parade route and will walk among parade watchers with containers to collect cash donations for the PACH Pantry. We invite everyone in our community to join us at our wonderful annual parade, and please bring unexpired, non-perishable groceries to help us fill our shopping carts. Donated groceries and personal care items will help stock the pantry for the summer so we can help our neighbors stock their kitchens. If you would like to march in the parade with PACH to support our efforts, please call or email the PACH Office.
Sixteen local businesses served as collection points betweeen February 17th and 23rd, giving their employees, and Pepperell residents and shoppers town-wide opportunities to donate food and personal care items to help stock the PACH pantry for the remainder of winter. PACH extends A BIG THANKS to all businesses and local institutions that participated in this first town-wide winter drive, as well as all individuals who donated items. For participating businesses and details, please see our News page.

The Pepperell Post Office invites all residents to participate in the National Association of Letter Carriers' annual Stamp Out Hunger campaign. Pepperell postal carriers will leave Stamp Out Hunger bags in residents' mailboxes about a week before the collection day. Leave grocery donations in that bag or your own bag beside, inside, or hanging from your mail box before your mail delivery on Saturday, May 11th. Your postal carrier will pick them up while driving your route. PACH volunteers will meet the drivers at the Post Office to gather all collected groceries for delivery to the Food Pantry on Saturday afternoon, where more volunteers will sort and shelve the donations.
"Most Needed" items at PACH include: Peanut Butter & Jelly, Healthy Cereals, Juice, Pasta Sauce, Canned Fruit, After-school Snacks, and Size 4 or 5 Disposable Diapers; but all unexpired canned and dry goods are welcome. If you wish to help with the delivery and sorting of donations, please call or email PACH Outreach.
PACH Outreach is in need of a Fundraising Coordinator to work with the Board of Directors and PACH volunteers to plan and manage a couple fundraisers each year to maintain our treasury at a level commensurate with the growing demand for services in the ongoing sluggish economy.
