For many years we have been asking for donations to the Bridgewater Food panty every first Sunday of the month. However, the need seems to be increasing locally. So we are now asking for donations on a regular basis. Any Sunday that you are able, please bring non-perishable foods, paper goods and/or toilet articles. The items may be left in the large colorful box on a bench in the hall between the sanctuary and Parish Hall. A member of the Social Justice Committee will deliver them to the Food pantry at Central Square Congregational Church.

Many thanks for the contributions several of you have been making. They are much appreciated.

From the UCC Church:

The Food Pantry

The Food Pantry at Central Square is open on Thursdays from 10 AM – 1 PM, and also the first Monday of every month from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

It is open to all Bridgewater Residents (with proof of residency in Bridgewater at registration).

About the Food Pantry

This service to the Bridgewater community is intended to provide supplemental assistance to Bridgewater residents in need.  The quantity of food distributed is based on the number of people in each household and the availability of sufficient quantities of specific food items. Patrons are allowed to select their groceries with assistance from a pantry staff person.

A large selection of non-perishable items is usually available, as well as selected perishable items based on availability.

Proof of Bridgewater residency is required to participate in the program.

Donations Requested

Non-perishable canned goods and other items are being collected.  The need in Bridgewater is still present and we want to give all residents an opportunity to help.  Please bring your donations to the church during the hours, Monday through Thursday, 9 AM – 12 PM.  Or you may call 508.697.6016 to make other arrangements.
