Those events will lead into the Our Neighbor’s Table’s big pre-Christmas food drive on Dec. 14, when volunteers will accept donations at Stop and Shop.
Outside of individual food donations, Our Neighbor’s Table will also have the benefit of a $10,000 grant recently awarded to the organization by the Provident Bank, which donated the funds this week to help support its food pantry.
While Our Neighbor’s Table could always use more food, Haight said the past few drives actually brought in so many items that some of it needed to be stored off site in the empty storefront that used to house The Cottage in Main Street plaza where CVS used to be.
“We’ve got a local business owner let us use some of his space at the Cottage,” Haight said. “He’s letting us use one of those empty storefronts to help store our food.”
