Warwick Ecumenical Food Pantry is now accepting donations for its 2019 Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday Program

| 01 Nov 2019 | 02:12

Please help us make the holidays a little nicer for families in the Town of Warwick.

We are asking for bags of shelf stable groceries to help provide the basics for a holiday meal. Families who use the pantry will receive a bag for each of Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Donors need not provide all items on the list below, if their budget does not permit it.

Alternatively, donors may combine their contributions for a bag or bags.

We ask that you provide only the items listed, in the sizes specified. Pantry volunteers will check donations to insure that families receive bags with the same items.

The pantry began accepting food donations on Oct. 29. We encourage you to deliver as early as possible.

We also gratefully will receive ShopRite or Price Chopper gift cards, or monetary donations, to help offset our own cost of purchasing groceries for the program. Mail to the address below, Attention: Holiday Program or make a donation at our website, www.warwickpantry.com.

Contributions may be delivered to the pantry at: Warwick United Methodist Church, 135 Forester Ave., Warwick.

The church office is open 9:30 a.m. to noon Monday to Thursday.

Enter from rear parking lot at far left of the building.

The pantry is open 8 to 9:30 a.m. Monday-Wednesday; 6 to 8 p.m. Monday and Thursday; and 3:30-5:30 p.m. Tuesdays.

Enter from rear parking lot at far right of the building.
