The mission of this organization is to provide assistance to local persons in their time of need; "assistance" is defined as emergency financial support and/or the use of the resources of the food pantry.
We also help provide unified spiritual enrichment to the community, including ecumenical events, such as Christmas on the Common, and an Easter Sunrise Service.
We serve more than 100 local families on a regular basis. CCS/ North Reading Food Pantry is grateful for the support of the entire community in making these programs work for all of us.
