A food and healthcare products drive held by Weston Kiwanis at the shopping center on January 20 produced good results. More such events are planned in the near future to support the Weston Food Pantry.
Donations by shoppers at the center filled more than 40 bags of shelf-stable food items and toiletries. In addition, cash and Venmo contributions amounted to $601. In a thank-you letter to Kiwanis, Food Pantry president Anne Bigin said the money “will be used to keep our shelves filled with a wide variety of items that will continue to assist our Weston neighbors with food insecurities.”
Ms. Bigin said 70 Weston families qualify for the Food Pantry’s assistance. She is on the left in the photo below, with, to her right, the first shift of volunteers: Emily Kreger, Avery Kreitler, Leigha Fudale, Reed Ameden, Sofia Tomanelli, and Bridget Achar.
