This message came from the City of Newton;
Join us at City Hall on Monday, December 31st from 10 – 10:30 to help sort the food with the Mayor!
Please help our neighbors facing food insecurity. Newton’s four food pantries provide meals for more than 1,800 people each month, and they need everyone’s help to keep up with the growing need right here in Newton.
Donate to the Newton Food Drive—the four pantries are asking for breakfast foods including cereal, granola, oatmeal, energy and granola bars, non-perishable milk boxes, coffee, tea, and peanut butter. (Sorry, no open or expired food can be accepted.)
Donations will be collected from Monday December 3 through Thursday December 27 at City Hall and more than 30 other locations across Newton. A complete list of the sites can be found HERE.
Bring extra donations and help us sort the donated food on Monday, December 31st from 10 – 10:30 am in the War Memorial at City Hall. We need help from everyone, from youngsters to seniors. Plus, we’ll have craft making, face painting, and refreshments for the Mayor’s New Year’s Eve Open House until noon.
