Hurley Middle School Food Drive Fills Shelves at Doorways Food Pantry

Posted

The families of Dr. Kevin M. Hurley Middle School recently participated in a food drive on behalf of the Doorways food pantry. Their efforts raised over 800 cans of food, plus hundreds of boxes of cereal and other boxed groceries. The quantity of food raised collectively was truly impressive! The people of Doorways would like to express heartfelt thanks to the Hurley School community, and to the other three Seekonk Public Schools as well, for their continued support and hard work in conducting numerous food drives and food raising events to fill our shelves ahead of the long, cold winter months. Their gifts support many Seekonk residents who are facing challenging times, and the food they provided will stock the cupboards, fill the lunchboxes, and grace the dinner tables of homes in our community for weeks to come. The food they collect stays in town, benefitting Seekonk residents who are experiencing hard times.

Special thanks is due to the coordinators of the various food drives: Linda Horton at the Seekonk High School, Jennifer St. Michael at the Dr. Kevin M. Hurley Middle School, Ann Marie Braganca at the Martin Elementary School, and the members of the Aitken School PTA. It takes a lot of time and effort to organize, collect and deliver all that food, and we wish to publicly acknowledge their contribution. To the students, the parents, the faculty and staff of all four schools, we are grateful for your generous support of our mission – thank you so much!
