THE POWER OF $1. One day, Wesley, a 6 1/2-year-old, and his mom were talking about helping people in our community. When she mentioned to him that some people don’t have enough food to eat and that she donates money to the Pantry, Wesley dashed up to his room, pulled a dollar bill from his bank and with his mom’s help they mailed it in a beautifully decorated card to Loaves & Fishes!
BAKING WITH A PURPOSE. Charly, a 15-year-old Sophomore at Littleton High School, found that she had a lot of time on her hands because sports were canceled due to the pandemic. Charly is a skilled baker, and she decided to put her time and skills to use for the Pantry. She holds a virtual bake sale every weekend and donates the proceeds to Loaves & Fishes! So far she has donated $400!
BRIANNA’S BRACELETS. Brianna and her family participated in The Neighborhood Food Project until it was temporarily suspended due to COVID. She wanted to find another way to help and that’s when she decided to make bracelets and necklaces! With a bit of help from big brother Ryan, they set up a stand outside their home in Devens and collected $145! Impressive for this little 3rd grader who attends school at Hildreth Elementary in Harvard!
