"In darkest of times light continues to shine through and the residents of Groton have brightened this extraordinary journey we are sharing. The Groton Council on Aging shares our deepest appreciation to this community for their support. Our hearts are full by the extraordinary outpouring of generosity from the parents of school aged children that are shopping for our at risk residents, the unprecedented amount of donations that have been given in such a timely manner for our unexpected food pantries at The Groton Center and Middle School, the hundreds of masks handmade and distributed within our community and the bags of food and puzzle books donated to our residents.
"We also cannot understate the support of the ever-present organizations that step-up time after time; The Friends of Groton Elders, GDRSD, The Groton Food Project, Groton Commissioner of Trust Funds, The Groton Channel, and outside our town, Townsend Ecumenical Outreach and Springdell Farms. We could not be prouder to live and serve in this community. Thank you, thank you, thank you!" -- Kathy Shelp, Director, Groton Council on Aging
Continuing Supplemental Food Resource
We are pleased to announce that Loaves and Fishes food pantry will reopen to serve Groton and our surrounding towns on Friday, April 24. We are very gratified to also continue to be a supplemental food resource for our residents at the Council on Aging. Please call us, 978-448-1170, for your appointment. (We will make deliveries if you are unable to leave your home.) Through the extraordinary support of the Friends of Groton Elders, our community, and the Groton Neighborhood Food Project, we will continue to distribute additional food resources until our supply has been depleted. We thank this community for their support and ask that, going forward, all donations be directed to Loaves and Fishes.
