Any and all Food Pantry contributions are greatly appreciated by those who make use of them. During 2015, the Food Pantry served 190 people from 70 Yarmouth families. As one patron said: “As a person whose income is just Social Security, I find that everything seems really expensive. The Yarmouth Community Food Pantry has been such a help! You never know what’s going to be there, but it is always fun to build my weekly menu around it. The Food Pantry is really a blessing – keep up the great work!!”
Coats, hats, and mittens for Operation Bundle-Up may be donated year-round at Town Hall in Yarmouth, Maine. During the winter of 2015, this program collected 195 coats and purchased 5 coats in sizes not on hand so that 73 winter coats could be provided to Yarmouth families. Remaining coats were donated to the Immigrant Program at the Unitarian Church and Goodwill.
From late October through the end of December, donation boxes will be available at:
- Yarmouth Community Services office (behind Town Hall)
- Town Hall
- Merrill Memorial Library
- Maine Roasters Coffee
- Vestibule between Village Consignment & Island Treasure Toys
