WCSC’s Food Pantry Provides Critical Food, Supplies; Needs Community Help to Restock Shelves

The Woburn Council of Social Concern’s Food Pantry is in need of critical donations to help our neighbors in need during the COVID-19 crisis. Many thanks to all of the generous residents and local groups who have already donated critical food and personal care items. Let’s keep the shelves stocked!
 
Monetary donations are also welcome, and can be made at www.socialconcern.org
 
At this time, in addition to the following particular items on the wish list for April, is the need for the Food Pantry to restock its supply of disinfecting wipes (Lysol, Chlorox, etc.). The Pantry staff and volunteers are working around the clock to serve the community, and are constantly wiping down carts, door handles and other touch points to keep everyone safe. If you have any to donate, please drop off to Paula Matthews in the Food Pantry.
