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.
It's oh so sweet when friends help each other! The Scarborough Food Pantry had too much peanut butter this week, plus extra soup and mac'n'cheese. Project GRACE took dozens of boxes, jars and cans to school nutrition's 'backpacks' program feeding families every week. Plus, thanks to a gift from Saco Biddeford Savings, Project GRACE added 80+ squeezable grape & strawberry jelly & jams. Sweet!
Please help feed your neighbors. Bring canned soups, hearty stews and chowders, and canned proteins (tuna, ham, chicken, etc.) to the Lions Club at 273 Gorham Road on Saturday, February 26th & Sunday, February 27th 12 Noon - 3:00 p.m.
You can also bring grocery gift cards to help the pantry get essentials. Thank you!
During the month of May, the Scarborough Food Pantry is giving taco dinner kits, and Project GRACE is contributing fresh limes, onions, and sweet peppers. If you'd like to help us build a kit, follow this link to our SignUpGenius. You can bring your donation to the pantry on any Tuesday afternoon (1-4) or email our friends at Project GRACE at email@example.com if that timing isn't convenient. Don't want to shop? You can also donate to sponsor a meal kit.
What's in a kit? Taco shells, MILD seasoning and sauce, rice, shredded cheese, beans, onion, lime, sweet bell pepper, and ground beef. (PLEASE DO NOT DONATE MEAT, instead give a gift card or the other items.)
