Hello neighbors! We’re so proud to be part of a community that supports one another. Here at the Pantry, volunteers show up every day to organize a wide range of tasks including pick-ups, deliveries, and donations. This week, we’ve distributed food and other resources to help over 450 people (families, new clients, and home deliveries).
October marks our 10th year of the Dobbs Ferry food pantry! Please join us on Sunday, October 17th at 10:00 a.m. at South Presbyterian Church for a special celebration in Fellowship Hall. We’re so grateful to Stop & Shop, MOM’S Organic Market, Panera, The Shop in Ardsley, and New York Bagel Authority for their generous support. We also want to thank Girl Scout Troop 2165 from Dobbs who helped put away deliveries and recycle cardboard this week. Now more than ever, it’s vital that we take care of each other.
How can you help? Have you checked out The Bit’s new menu? Be sure to stop in Thursday, October 21st starting at 5:00 p.m. 15% of all orders will go to the Dobbs Ferry Pantry (take-out too). Additionally, we have a bin for non-perishable donations to the left of the South Church’s double church doors with the mail slot.
Items most needed this week: Peanut butter (no glass!), diapers (size 6), wipes, and Stop & Shop gift cards.
