The Maynard Food Pantry has so much to be thankful for!
Thank you to:
Everyone who brought a food donation to the 2021 Christmas & Holiday Parade to benefit the Maynard Food Pantry, Backpack Program and Open Table! You are amazing!!
We are also very grateful to Jen Picorelli and her helpers for organizing this traditional event this year, Darwin Fajardo and his family for providing his truck to collect the food along the route as well as Chris Gallo and Kerry Bernard who provided additional trucks, Will & Liz Doyle for opening up the Sanctuary to allow the Elves to sort the donations and the Elves (volunteers) themselves who gave up their valuable Sunday (especially during this busy time of the year) to help the three organizations! 12/5/21
Everyone who donated to this past weekend’s Pet Food Drive that resulted in much needed dog and cat food as well as cat litter! Thanks also to Nina Feldman who is instrumental in getting the word out when the need occurs!! All appreciated! 9/27/21

Maynard Youth Soccer Families for the incredible donation of $3,400! Many families decided to donate their Maynard Youth Soccer registrations to the Maynard Food Pantry in lieu of having the money returned to the families this Spring Season. According to Steve Charron and Andrew Holmes, “MYS wanted to target a charity that both benefits youth, including kids that play in MYS, and also is even more vital during the pandemic.” We are very grateful!! 6/23/20
