The people and organizations throughout Wakefield demonstrated their holiday spirit of giving in many ways. One way was decorating and filling Holiday Bags full of food to help their neighbors in need celebrate the season. Thank you Wakefield,and Happy New Year!
This year we continued our program to provide wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas meals to our clients!
Our Thanksgiving meal consisted of a choice of turkey or ham, cranberry sauce, canned vegetables, stuffing, potatoes, onions, fresh fruit donated by Lisatano Fruit which included apples, oranges and pineapples, frozen pies and rolls. We gave out approximately 140 meals.
Our Christmas meal consisted of pork tenderloin, canned and fresh vegetables, rolls, potatoes and frozen pies. We gave out approximately 105 Christmas meals. Our local Shaw’s Supermarket provided a lot of this food at low cost and even delivered it to us for distribution.
At their recent Holiday Food Drive, the staff at Century 21 Commonwealth collected over 100 Holiday Basket items for the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry to share with Wakefield residents in need. Some of the food supplies included turkey stuffing, turkey gravy, cranberry sauce and crackers. In addition, several large boxes of other urgently needed food items, toiletries and monetary donations were collected. “We’d like to thank Gene Mullen who helped coordinate this drive as well as the other members of the Century 21 Commonwealth team for their generous support of the food pantry,” said Maureen Miller, Director of Operations.
