CREATIVITY AT WORK

Each company listed below has found a very unique way to support the Pantry.  We applaud their creativity and send our gratitude to each of them for their support!

J&S BUSINESS PRODUCTS, INC. – AYER

Jose, the owner of J&S Business Products, Inc., found a creative way to show support for local businesses.  Check out their website at: http://www.jsbusinessproducts.com.  Purchase a shirt for $20 and $10 of your purchase will go directly to the business of your choice.  To purchase, go to:  https://route2apparel.com/nashobafund/shop/product-detail/22630563

We’re particularly fond of the Loaves & Fishes t-shirt!

MANILOW’S CANINE PLAYGROUND – DEVENS

Small business owner, Barbara Drury, has always believed in helping others.  “The true spirit of giving is doing for others that which creates pure joy and happiness for both the giver and the receiver.”  She decided to establish “Friday benefits” where a portion of the day’s income is donated to a local charity, organization or essential service.  Loaves & Fishes was their first beneficiary!  Rest assured Barbara, your kindness has truly made a difference.  Take at look at their website at: http://www.manilowsdoggiedaycare.com

POTTLEART, THE ARTISTRY OF JILL POTTLE

Local artist Jill Pottle decided to “help others worse off” by having a Driveway Art Show via email and Facebook.  She donated 100% of the proceeds to Loaves & Fishes!  Check out her website at:  https://pottleart.com/JMPottle/ to see some beautiful work!

WONDERING HOW A GOAT CAN BE A DONOR?

No, Tom Brady has not made a donation to Loaves & Fishes, but Ruth Schultz, a local goatscaper has!

 

She offers her team of goats each year to help us clear the overgrowth on the perimeter of the Pantry property.  The goats have a yummy meal and Loaves & Fishes has a unique, no cost way of maintaining our grounds!

We think that’s a win-win.

DONOR SPOTLIGHT

When we issued a plea for help, our local business community answered the call!  The COVID-19 crisis created a challenge for the Pantry on many levels.  One of our biggest challenges was finding a replacement truck and driver to retrieve our orders from The Greater Boston Food Bank each week.  Seven businesses offered their help.  We are beyond grateful for their support and can’t adequately thank them.  Please consider supporting all of these great companies and make sure you mention their kindness to Loaves & Fishes during our time of need.

IN THE WORDS OF ONE OF OUR CLIENTS…

“I never thought it would happen to me but it did!  Due to the COVID-19 crisis, I was laid off from my job at a local restaurant.  I’ve been struggling to pay my bills and have been surviving on peanut butter sandwiches and cereal.  I learned about Loaves & Fishes from a post I saw on Facebook and managed to find the courage to visit.  My sincere thanks to all the volunteers and donors – you’ve given me hope.”

-Brenda, a Littleton resident
