The Eastern Bank will sponsor a Food Drive for the Interfaith Food Pantry on Saturday, September 28th from 10AM-Noon at the Americal Civic Center (lower level) on Main St. Members of the community are encouraged to drop off non-perishable food items to the Eastern Bank during the week, or at the Food Pantry on Saturday morning. Checks made payable to The Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry will also be gratefully accepted. For an updated list of most needed food items, please visit the website: www.wifoodpantry.org
The WIFP would also like to thank The Wakefield High School Marching Band, the Music Boosters and Mr. Tom Bankert for hosting an impressively successful food drive again this year. This organization collected over 3,000 items of food and delivered it to the Pantry on Saturday, September 14th. The enthusiasm and generosity of community groups in Wakefield is always tremendously appreciated as we try to serve individuals and families in need.
