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.

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 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 10th. 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.
Under the leadership of owners Michael and Richard Green and food drive coordinator Kelly Flanders, the employees of 1A Auto of Pepperell collected 525 food items to stock the PACH pantry during its three-week "1A Drives Away Hunger" campaign. Thanks to 1A for its ongoing dedication to our community and contributions to PACH Outreach.
Enthusiastic 4th-grade football fan Riley McManus organized a "Souper Bowl" Food Drive for PACH as part of the season's culminating foot-ball celebration in January. The 10-year-old student got approval from Varnum Brook Elementary School's principal to ask all fellow students and their families to donate canned goods at the school during the week of the Super Bowl. Riley is shown here with some of the 470 cans collected by students in all grades. See the full story here. THANK YOU, RILEY!
