If you shop at the Shaw’s supermarket at the 43 Indian Rock Road Windham, NH location, please consider purchasing the reusable GIVE IT BACK WHERE IT COUNTS! bag. The Shepherd’s Pantry will receive $1 for every bag purchased until the end of April. Thanks!
And thanks to Kids in Service, who are collaborating with Shepherd’s Pantry by picking up the brown bag collection from St Matthew’s Great job!
Justin and Ethan Sudati enjoyed learning about Advent and service by doing a reverse Advent calendar leading up to December 25th. Every day they would donate food to help people in need as they anticipated Christmas. As a result they had two big boxes of food to bring to the Pantry for donation. They participate with their Mom Kristen in the organizations Mosaic Kids and Kids in Service.
What a great idea! Thanks so much.
Thanks to the NH Commercial Real Estate Association for a $500 donation to The Shepherd’s Pantry.
The Windham Turkey Trot is a major source of funding for The Shepherd’s Pantry. This year they raised $17,950.21 for the Pantry. Thanks to Louse Peltz, her volunteers and Turkey Trot participants for another successful event.
Thanks to the Windham Cooperative Kindergarten for once again running their Giving Box Food Drive for the Shepherd’s Pantry. This year they collected eight bags of food and monetary donations as well. Thanks so much for your help!
Thanks to the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts of Windham for a very successful Scouting for Food drive!
The Scouts, fueled by Munchkins and apple cider, collected and helped sort 3420 items: 35% more than last year. These items will be distributed to our friends and neighbors in need.
Thanks Scouts! Great job.
Did you know that 1 in 9 men, women and children in NH do not know where their next meal is coming from? The Boy Scouts will once again help our friends and neighbors in need by participating in the Scouting for Food campaign.
The Scouts will distribute bags and door hangers with information on Saturday November 3 and return the following Saturday, November 10 between 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM, to pick up your donations of non-perishable food items and deliver them to the Pantry. The Scouts also help us sort the items. This campaign is state-wide and benefits 150 soup kitchens and food pantries throughout the state.
Below is a list of suggested items for the Scouting for Food event. For the safety of our Scouts, please do not include items in glass jars or bottles.
Last year the Scouts collected 2408 items for the Shepherd’s Pantry. Please consider participating in this important program. Thanks!
It was a rainy and cold Saturday, however that did not stop the NH Tackles Hunger event!
WMUR teamed up with the New Hampshire Food Bank and worked with high school football teams, including the Windham High School football team, to tackle hunger in New Hampshire. At the WHS football team’s October 13th game, Shepherd’s Pantry volunteers were there to collect food and donations from fans before the game.
The Windham High School football team also collected food donations during the week for the Pantry.
In total, 640 lbs of food was collected for Shepherd’s Pantry!
Thank you to all the volunteers, the Windham High School football team, and everyone who came to the game to support the NH Tackles Hunger event!
Each year Club members collect and distribute sweaters and coats to Pantry clients and others, spreading warmth where it’s needed. Many thanks to the Women’s Service Club for all their good works.
