What we Need

Thank you Simple Gesture donors and volunteers.  This food collection program works because of YOU.  If you are organized and disciplined, you probably have a bag all ready to be picked up, with one item donated from each trip to the store.  But if you’re like me, you may make a trip to the store this week to fill your cool green bag.  This page update is for you:  Here’s what we’re hearing from the Food Pantry:

If when you clicked “needed” you were thinking we need drivers or volunteer sorters for our next pickup, of course we do!  Just drop us a note: asimplegesture.norwell@gmail.com, or tell us on our Contact Us page.  We love to help students from 7th grade to 12th grade develop good community service habits, and also like their energy for sorting and eyes for checking expiration dates!

Finally, if your personal charitable giving includes community service organizations like ours, we hope you’ll donate to help defray our ongoing costs,
