Penobscot Pet Pantry

Folks--
We had another good, busy pantry this month.  The weather held—probably the only day in two weeks that it didn’t rain—and there was plenty of food and help on hand.
Gray (thanks for the coffee and doughnuts!!), Noah, RJ, Gordy, Dee and Rodney came in the morning, set things up, and bagged eleven (11!) fifty-gallon drums of loose food...and a table of treats and accessories.  In about an hour.
Singing while they worked.
We broke for lunch and then Dee, Bruce, Jeannette, Tom and Sunday handed out 1877 Lbs. of dry food to 47 people while Gordy was at The Table.  That’s up a few over last month, but not a record.  I think the most people we’ve helped was one pantry in 2013 when 63 folks showed up for food.  We were hoppin’ that month.
We were done and gone last Thursday by 3.
Thanks again to all who keep this thing going.  I couldn’t do it alone.  We rely completely on donations and volunteers.  Fresh off the Farm contributes bags, Midcoast Solid Waste gives us twist ties, Hannaford gives us bag clips, Walmart and PAWS and Pope Memorial donate food, Dooryard Farm donates storage space, Marine Colloids contribute the 50-gal drums...and the American Legion lets us use their meeting hall as a distribution point.  If you get the chance, give them a big thumbzup!
 
See you next month!
