Aitken School Families Donate to Doorways


The Aitken School community as been a strong supporter in the fight against food uncertainty. The Aitken PTO recently held a Family Bingo night that also doubled as a food drive for Doorways, and a great deal of delicious food was delivered to our door the following week. Aitken PTO has also twice hosted the “Icecreamapalooza” that serves as centerpiece to the Empty Bowls fundraiser. The students at Aitken School are learning more than just readin’ and writin’ – they are learning to give back to their community.

As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, the volunteers and clients of Doorways are thankful for the unwavering support of the community of Seekonk. For these many years, Doorways has been blessed by donations from the schools, the churches, and from civic organizations; from local businesses and from hundreds of individual residents. Food donations flow from our pantry to fill cupboards throughout our town; monetary donations allow Doorways to purchase thousands of pounds of fresh produce, meat and food staples from the Boston Food Bank every year. Over seventy families depend on Doorways on a regular basis, and Doorways depends on neighbors to help neighbors. Happy Thanksgiving to all, from Doorways!
