Doorways Gets a Lift from the Knights of Columbus


The Doorways food pantry literally “got a lift” from the Seekonk Council of the Knights of Columbus with the donation of a pallet jack to assist in the unloading of the truck that picks up food from the Boston Food Bank. The truck travels to Boston twice a month and returns with 4,000-5,000 pounds of food each time. A handful of sturdy volunteers unload the truck and bring the food inside for shelving; it is heavy work and the pallet jack will lighten that load. Several members of the Knights of Columbus are among the volunteers who unload the truck (including Marty O’Laughlin, Ralph Tomei and Rolland St. Pierre, among others). We thank the Knights for their generous gift of the pallet jack, and we thank all our volunteer unloaders for the irreplaceable gift of their time and effort. Your contribution is essential to our mission to provide food security in our town. God bless you for your help.
