News & Events

  • PACH PRESIDENT RETIRES FROM BOARD; NEW MEMBERS JOIN
  • After six years on the PACH Board of Directors, her last three as Board President, Mary Feeley retired from the PACH Outreach Board as of their December 2015 reorganization meeting. Mary has served the Board well, and under her leadership several new activities were taken on by PACH, such as annual participation in the Pepperell Fourth of July parade, more food drives, and an annual fundraiser to raise money for a building fund to renovate or build space for the pantry if we lose our current space at Peter Fitzpatrick School. Also leaving the Board at that time was Janet Bohling, who joined last year and has contributed her talents in publicizing PACH events. Thank-you, Janet, and HUGE THANKS to Mary for her dedicated years of service.

    Brandon Crocker, a board member since 2013, assumed the role of temporary Board President in January and was since elected to the office. He brings education and background in management of charitable organizations to the board, as well as four years experience as a regular volunteer in the PACH pantry. Three new directors joined the board in March to replace the outgoing members: Marcia Zaniboni, Pam Lundstrum, and Patricia Thorpe, all Pepperell residents who have served our community in many capacities over the years. Welcome to the PACH Board, Marcia, Pam, and Patricia! And we wish you success in your term as President, Brandon!

Christmas Dinner Basket Sign-up thru December 15th

Thanks to the generosity of our community neighbors, churches, and businesses, PACH Outreach supplied Thanksgiving dinners to over 100 Pepperell families again this year. The pantry is now taking requests for Christmas dinner baskets through December 15th. If you are in need of Christmas dinner--or if you know a Pepperell family in need--please call the pantry or stop by the office during open hours and sign up for a complete Christmas dinner including a ham, turkey, or chicken and all the fixings. Dinners will be available for pick-up in the cafeteria at Peter Fitzpatrick School on Saturday, December 17th from 12:00-2:00 p.m.

**Volunteer Needs**

  • Drivers & Manpower needed midday on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, four to eight times per year, for delivery of Greater Boston Food Bank order from Ayer to Pepperell. See our Volunteer page for details.
  • 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.
