DID YOU KNOW that you can donate non-perishable food items or checks at Marlborough Elementary School every day during working hours (school year 8am-4pm: summer 8:30 am-3pm)? Under their “Families Feeding Families” program, the administration, staff and students maintain a donation box to support the food bank. This generous program allows donors the freedom of stopping in at the school office anytime the school is open to make a donation, or sending in items with students on the bus. Special thanks to teacher Ellen Eastwood, the administration, other faculty and students.
You can also donate non-perishable goods at the box at Town Hall during their posted hours.
The Food Bank managers and volunteers thank these partners for their generous support.
