Considering making a gift to the Norwood Food Pantry? At this time (end of March 2013), we urgently need cereal of all types.

Anyone wishing to make a donation can drop it off at the food pantry (located at the rear entrance of Grace Episcopal Church, 150 Chapel Street in Norwood) Thursday mornings between 8:30 and 9:30 or Saturday mornings between 7:30 and 11. Plentiful parking is available, and volunteers are on hand to assist in carrying bags and boxes.

For those who prefer, convenient drop-off boxes are located in the Morrill Memorial Library and Hannaford’s Supermarket, both on Route 1A/Walpole Street; Shaw’s on Nahatan Street; and Stop & Shop on Route 1/Providence Highway.

Checks and cash donations are always greatly appreciated, as well. Checks should be made out to “Ecumenical Community Food Pantry of Norwood” and sent to 150 Chapel Street, Norwood, MA 02062.
