Marjorie McAvoy, Scarborough Biddeford Savings branch manager, now a part of Maine Community Bank, stopped by the pantry today to present a check from a local business in honor of the bank's recent name change! The timely gift will help us feed our neighbors. Pictured are Marjorie, Ellen Parenteau, and Bert Follansbee.
We've been blessed with several generous donations recently. Thank you to the The Maine Bagel who are donating their delicious bagels. The Scarborough Kiwanis brought ham steaks, just in time for Easter. And also to the community of the Eight Corners School who recently held an awesome food drive for us!
The Scarborough Lions Club, in partnership with the Scarborough Food Pantry, is holding its first ever “Diaper Drive” to collect infant and toddler diapers as well as adult incontinence supplies during the month of January 2023.
Prices for all sorts of basic necessities are still high, and many of our neighbors are having a difficult time making ends meet. Some, especially seniors and families with young babies, are making difficult choices at the checkout, and sometimes have to go without essentials.
The Lions Club and Food Pantry hope to count on the public’s support to help our neighbors through these difficult times. More info is available on the club’s FaceBook page at https://www.facebook.com/ScarboroughLions644/Donations can be dropped off at three locations in Scarborough during the month of January:
Please help us collect much- needed nonperishable food & raise $15,000 for the three pantries feeding our neighbors in South Portland, Cape Elizabeth, and Scarborough on Saturday, December 17th.
As part of Project GRACE's annual back to school drive, we're hosting a food drive on Thursday, August 11th.
Any nonperishable foods are welcome, especially PB&J, granola bars, fruit cups, and grocery gift cards in any amount to help families get ready for back-to-school. Volunteers will be on hand at the pantry from 4:00-5:30 to receive donations curbside.
