The elementary school communities in Sudbury are incredibly gracious contributors to the Sudbury Food Pantry. They provide nearly 35% of what the Food Pantry distributes each month to 60-80 families. Every donated item allows the pantry to serve its mission of helping any individual or family in need. More information about the Sudbury Food Pantry can be found at http://sudburyfoodpantry.
As an ongoing social action experience, 4th and 5th graders encourage Loring students and staff to donate what they can to the school's collection one Friday every month. Collection days are busy days!
Have just one hour to make a difference for families in need?
We could use your help! One Friday each month volunteers are needed to sort and deliver Loring’s collection of food pantry donations. Come one, some, or all collection days – your time will be appreciated.
In typical years, the fourth or fifth grade class sorts the collection in the school dining room with the help of adult volunteers. However, things still look a bit different this year because of the pandemic and the students will not be involved in the sorting.
Adult volunteers are needed to pick up the items from Loring's drop off doors after school starts, deliver the items to the parking lot of Our Lady of Fatima on Concord Rd, and help sort the items until every donation is packed – usually in less than an hour. Volunteers can help with all, or just one, of the above tasks!
