Windham Cub Scouts Den #1 Pack #263. The Cub Scouts did a Community Service Project for Shepherd’s Pantry. They came to the Pantry on a Monday morning to help sort groceries and produce. Then they raised money to purchase food for the Pantry at the Windham Shaw’s. Because they bought so much food, they received many Shaw’s Monopoly tickets — too many for the boys to check in the store. Later one of the Den Mothers found that they had won $5000 worth of groceries at Shaws! The Cub Scouts decided to donate the $5000 to the Pantry, since they had been shopping for the Pantry when they won.
Zoe Makris and her Mom Jennifer for a very special donation to the Shepherd’s Pantry. Zoe just turned eight years old. As her birthday was close to Christmas, she didn’t need more toys, so Zoe and her Mom decided to ask Zoe’s friends to make a donation to the Shepherd’s Pantry in lieu
of birthday presents. They sent out party invitations with the Pantry’s website and some donation suggestions. This week Zoe and her Mom stoppd by the pantry with 10 bags of food, household and personal care items. Thanks Zoe, you set a great example for all of us!
Windham Shaw’s and their customers for a very successful Spirit of Giving Campaign. Shaw’s collected cash donations from their customers from Thanksgiving until January 1st and hosted two Open Houses attended by Shepherd’s Pantry volunteers. The donations collected provided 267 boxes of food to the Pantry. That’s four pickup truck loads! Thanks to Shaw’s and their customers, you really made a difference.
The Girl and Boy Scouts of Windham, their parents, and Windham residents who participated in the Scouting for Food Drive. Together the Scouts collected and sorted over 4100 food and household items for the Pantry!

Patrick McHale who had the great idea to keep the Windham Restaurant open on Sunday February 22, 2015 for a special fundraiser in support of Shepherd’s Pantry. His enthusiasm convinced many local businesses to make donations for lots of raffles. And for those in attendance who wanted to have some fun, Patrick ran a bingo type game called a “Meat Roll Off.” The fundraiser was a great success thanks to his hard work.
Susan Grubbs, who was searching for a clever way to celebrate her husband’s 50th birthday. Because his birthday fell on Pi day (3/14/15) she decided to celebrate by buying 50 pies that her husband could donate to the Shepherd’s Pantry. The families of Shepherd’s Pantry appreciate their
