Join the group of people who deliver groceries from the First Parish Newbury Food Pantry to shut ins and others who work during regular pantry hours. They place their orders online, orders are filled on Friday mornings and we pick up their groceries and deliver to their doorsteps. about ten different routes - some to private homes and others to apartments. This is an all-volunteer pantry that is very welcoming to both volunteers and guests.

The Pantry is open only of Fridays delivery volunteers are needed from roughly 9:30 am to 1:30 pm. Volunteers arrive in shifts so that the ones who arrive early also leave early.

We would like volunteers to help out once or twice a month and make up a schedule about a month in advance. We also call people sometimes at the last minute to see if they can help because a regular may have a conflict.

You would need to use your own car and cell phone and be able to comfortably carry bags of groceries.

Mission Statement

Pennies for Poverty is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization whose mission is to ease the impact of poverty on the people of Greater Newburyport by endorsing models of assistance that promote dignity, supporting allied organizations both financially and collaboratively, increasing community awareness of poverty through citizen education, and inspiring and encouraging volunteerism.

Description

Pennies for Poverty, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was founded in 2008 with the belief that if everyone in the community does a little to help those in need, we can substantially reduce poverty and improve the well being of all members of the community. The original mantra for the organization was "2 Cents, 2 Cans, 2 Hours, Together." That is, everyone should put aside 2 cents a day and 2 cans a week and volunteer 2 hours a month so that together we reduce poverty.
