Norfolk County Register of Deeds William P. O’Donnell recently delivered donations of food to the Brookline Food Pantry. The contributions came from the Registry staff, title examiners and the public who participated in the Registry’s Annual Holiday Food Drive which was held from November 19th to December 28th.
The Register stated, “It was my pleasure to deliver these food items donated through the generosity of so many.” O’Donnell handed over such items as boxes of spaghetti, jars of sauce, canned soups, vegetable, fruits and cleaning and paper products several of which are in high demand, especially during the winter season.
“Unfortunately, many of our neighbors are food insecure. A study by Project Bread noted that 1 out of 10 household in Massachusetts are in need of food assistance. Children are the most vulnerable with 1 in 7 being food insecure. Compounding the situation is that winter is the toughest season to balance a family’s budget, given home heating costs,” said Register O’Donnell.
While at the Pantry, Register O’Donnell had the opportunity to view its operation. “It is truly inspiring to see the many volunteers who give of their time to help those less fortunate. ”
The Brookline Food Pantry is open to all Brookline Residents who are low-income and in need of food. For more information on the Pantry’s operations, please go to www.brooklinefoodpantry.org or call them at 617-800-5339.
