HAMPSTEAD — The Hampstead Lions Club will be conducting a food drive on Sat., October 17, at to benefit the St. Anne Ecumenical Food Pantry at 26 Emmerson Ave in Hampstead, from 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. You may drop off donations behind St. Anne’s, where Lion volunteers will be available to take your contribution. In order to maintain safety and social distancing, please place donations in the trunk of your vehicle or other easily accessible spot for volunteers to gather items with little to no contact.
In addition to non-perishable items, there is a need for personal hygiene supplies. St. Anne’s will also accept cash, checks made out to “St. Anne Parish” and gift cards to stores to include Hannaford, Market Basket and Walmart.
A recent national study reports an estimated 1 in 9 people in this country have concerns about where their next meal comes from. This area is expected to see a 14-15% increase in demands this winter. Weather it is by donation, or just spreading the word, the Hampstead Lions Club and St. Anne’s thanks you for your support so we can help community members in need.
