Register O'Donnell Announces Last Call
on 2016 Annual Holiday Food Drive
Stating that food pantries throughout Norfolk County direly need your assistance during this holiday season and throughout the winter months, Register William P. O'Donnell announced a last call for non-perishable food donations as the Registry of Deeds Annual Food Drive is about to come to a close on Friday, December 30th.
"Project Bread estimated that 1 out of every 9 households in Massachusetts is considered food insecure. In Norfolk County some of our less fortunate neighbors continue to face economic hardship. We see this each month in the foreclosure numbers. These people and others are truly hurting. It could be from a lay-off, a medical catastrophe or just a case of bad luck," noted Register O'Donnell.
The Register noted that this time of year, which brings joy to so many, also creates stress for others. And local pantry officials agree. "During the holiday season families in need face so many difficult challenges," noted Eileen Hickey of the Norwood Ecumenical Food Pantry. Her thoughts were echoed by Cas Casados of the Weymouth Food Pantry who said, "When the demand rises in the winter, food drives are crucial to helping meet the need. In the cold winter months, we see an increase in the number of families coming to our doors as some of our neighbors struggle to afford food with rising energy bills."
Non-perishable food items can be brought directly to the Registry of Deeds, 649 High Street, Dedham up to Friday, December 30, 2016. A donation bin will be set-up in the Registry building lobby which is open to the public Monday through Friday from 8:00AM to 4:30PM. Suggested donations include canned goods, breakfast cereals, pasta, canned soups, jars of spaghetti sauce, toiletries and paper products.
Register O'Donnell concluded, "If you can't get here to drop off food, you can always check our Registry's website.atwww.norfolkdeeds.org for the food pantry location in your community. Working together, we can truly make a huge difference this holiday season and beyond."
