Pennies for Poverty will be teaming with Shaw’s Supermarket in Port Plaza, Newburyport on the weekend of May 10-12 to collect food donations for the five area food pantries serving Greater Newburyport. People are urged to pick up a prepackaged bag of needed grocery items. The bags will be available as you enter the store or just before the registers. Once the bag is paid for at the register the food items will set aside for distribution to the food pantries on Monday May 13th. The donations will be split between Salvation Army and Community Service in Newburyport, Our Neighbors Table and Community Action in Amesbury as well as Pettengill House in Salisbury.
On Saturday and Sunday May 11 & 12 volunteers from Pennies for Poverty will be on hand to answer your questions and thank you for your generosity. As we all know the need for food right now is great and the food pantries struggle to provide for all who ask for assistance. We hope you will come by and help.
