As in years past, the Maynard Food Pantry will be helping local families in need during the upcoming holiday season by providing them with dinner baskets and gifts.

Donations of dinner baskets and/or gifts from families, organizations, groups, and companies will help us accomplish this goal.  Suggestions for dinner baskets include a canned ham or fresh ham together with a combination of bagged potatoes, fresh squash, carrots, sweet potatoes, canned or fresh vegetables, apples, oranges, canned pineapple, fruit juice, packaged rolls, and packaged desserts.
Those who would like to purchase gifts will be given specific information about a certain child(ren) including ages, sizes, and special gift requests.
If you would like to donate one or more of these items or would like additional information, please contact Mary Brannelly at no later than Friday, December 8, 2023, for drop-off information. 

Please consider sending a donation of any amount to Maynard Food Pantry, PO Box 55, Maynard, MA 01754.  As we begin our 31st year, the Maynard Food Pantry is very grateful for the outpouring of support we receive from residents, businesses, and organizations in Maynard and beyond! 

Thank you and enjoy your Holidays!
