Seekonk Schools Run Food Drives To Fill Shelves At Doorways Food Pantry


The people of Doorways would like to express a heartfelt thank you to all four Seekonk Public Schools for their continued support and hard work in conducting four separate food drives to fill the pantry shelves ahead of the long, cold winter months. The quantity of food raised collectively was truly impressive! Their gift supports many Seekonk residents who are facing challenging times, and the food they provided will stock the pantries, 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, Ellen Hindle at the Dr. Kevin M. Hurley Middle School, Ann Marie Braganca at the Martin Elementary School, and Janessa Burgo 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!
