Volunteering at Local Food Pantries
Council: 2219 - WESTBROOK
Every year it seems like the need for volunteers at the local food pantries. The food pantries not only depend on donations but also depend on volunteers to help stock shelves, pick up donations and distribute food to those in need. All food pantries operate with very low budgets, which is mostly used to purchase items needed to help those in need. For this reason several of our council members volunteer their time to help in the food pantries within their own communities is, Westbrook, Gorham, and Windham. Even through our council is in Westbrook we have many Brother Knights who reside in other communities therefore assist all they can within their own communities as this need for help is just as great. This is an ongoing need for all communities and all who get involved enjoy the feeling they get when they get the chance to help others.
