The Pantry opens on Saturday from 10 am to 12pm to serve Lowell residents and other people from neighboring communities. We provide nutritious food and clothing to families in our community. We also hold cooking classes and educate some of the people on how they can cook the food we provide to them. We also do some physical/health exercise and job skills training such as CPR, First Aid, AED operation, blood borne pathogens, and OSHA work safety. Our food pantry staff and volunteers attend to families with compassion, love, respect and dignity.
We organize health campaigns, walks, and door to door initiatives to educate the people in our community about the unhealthy and deadly effects of drug use and overdose. As part of our strategy, we prepare healthy meals and take to the bridges and parks to members of our community involved in this societal menace. We also go door to door and hand in flyers of the things we do in the community. We organize after school programs and provide toys to children whose parents are caught in the web of drug use and addiction. We also assist in the placement of vulnerable children in foster homes, by referring them to the Department of Children and Families (DCF). We assist in referrals to detoxification agencies, who work on counseling this vulnerable population, in adopting healthier life styles.
