Republic Services Donates to Food Pantry

Today at noontime Bruce Stanos and Eric Curtis of Republic Services of Chicopee and Tyngsboro, MA, delivered a truckload of food to the food pantry! A while back Bruce contacted me with interest in our food pantry and who we service. He told me his business liked to help food pantries in the areas that they serve. They serve Montague! I gave him a bit of history, told him to check out our website and FB pages. A few days later he let me know that the company would be collecting food at their offices for the month of June with a delivery the first part of July. Today he showed up with a pick up of bags of food. The foods were non-perishables and our crew quickly had them weighed and on our shelves. This is a great time for donations since children are home and out of school. Republic Services said they will be helping us out from time to time and I can contact them if an emergency arises. Thank you so much for your donation of 355 pounds of food. This may not seem like a lot, but the foods they donated were lightweight and plenty of it! We thank them and look forward to them working with us to help feed the needy of Montague and Franklin County! Thanks again Bruce and Eric!
