Pantry Shelf Twentieth Anniversary

by Amy Porter

 20th Anniversary  Celebration
The board of directors for the Holliston Pantry Shelf would like to thank the Holliston community for 20 years of support with an Anniversary Celebration. Thanks to the generosity and dedication of the people of Holliston, we have been able to serve our patrons for 20 years this month. Operating the Pantry would not have been been possible without the support of all the volunteers and donors that have helped us throughout the years. Please help us celebrate at our Open House on Sunday, October 27 from 2:00 - 4:30 p.m. at Upper Town Hall. Light refreshments will be served and all are welcome! 
Halloween Food Drive
Students from the Holliston High School National Honor Society will be collecting  food donations during the evening of Wednesday, October 30 from 6:00 - 7:30. The annual event, which provides both food and paper goods for the Holliston Pantry Shelf, is taking place a day early this year. The students, dressed in costumes for Halloween, will go door-to-door in small groups throughout the neighborhoods in town. Items that are in particular need are paper towels, canned tuna/chicken, cereal, pasta and canned tomatoes. For those who know they will not be home during these hours, donations may be left outside the front door of homes.
As always, donations can be dropped at the Pantry during working hours Monday through Friday 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and Wednesdays 4:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. or anytime in the black drop box outside the Pantry Shelf at 23 Water Street, Holliston.
