Pantry And Thrift Shop News
Correction: Last week, we incorrectly stated our Saturday
hours. To clarify, we are open from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. on
Saturday and 3 - 6 p.m. on Wednesday.
The Food Pantry also sponsors a program that we call “Adopt A
Child”. This is a program where we attempt to provide needed
winter clothing as well as toys or age appropriate gifts for
Christmas. A person or family can “adopt” one child or an
entire family, or just provide some toys toward the program.
If this interests you, please contact Bethany Lavin at 267-1934.
All during the month of December the Gilmanton Thrift Shop will
feature our ever popular bag sale. This would be a great
opportunity to spruce up the winter wardrobe or maybe even do some
Christmas shopping. Fill an entire bag for only $7. You would
be surprised as to how much you can get in to one of our paper
We will still be collecting food items for Christmas baskets.
If you were unable to donate for Thanksgiving, but would still like
an opportunity to help your neighbors, Christmas is almost here.
We try to provide a little extra at Christmas to help families
provide nutritious meals and snacks while the children are on School
Items included in our Christmas food baskets include stuffing mix,
cranberry sauce, turkey gravy, canned vegetables and fruit, bottled
juice, sugar, coffee, cocoa, breakfast muffin mix, pickles, olives,
cake mixes, and frosting. Donations of money to purchase
butter/margarine, milk, eggs, fresh fruit, potatoes, and onions are
greatly appreciated. Turkeys or ham are the highlight of our
holiday baskets, thus a donation of a turkey or a ham would be a
most generous donation and greatly appreciated.
Non-perishable food items may be dropped off at the Academy
building, the Year Round Library, and at the Pantry during open
hours. Monetary donations may be brought to the Pantry or
mailed to Post Office Box 16, Gilmanton, N. H. 03237.
