Gilmanton Food Pantry And Thrift Shop News


The Gilmanton Food Pantry wants to congratulate all the Scouts in Gilmanton, and their families, for a successful “Scouting for Food” drive on Saturday, November 4th.  Thanks to your efforts and all the people who put out food (despite some not having power for a week) the Gilmanton Food Pantry received over 500 pounds of food. This donation will help us to assist others, especially at this time of year.


Right now preparations are in process for our Adopt-A-Child project.  Toys and clothing are purchased for those Gilmanton children who might not otherwise receive gifts at Christmas.  Anyone wishing to help with this worthwhile project may either adopt one child, one family of children or just purchase one gift on a child’s wish list.  For persons who may not have the time or resources to go and shop for gifts, we will accept a monetary donation and purchase the gift(s) on your behalf.  For more information, please contact Anne Kirby at 364-7498 or Katie McEntee at the Gilmanton School at 364-5681.


Donations for Christmas food baskets are especially helpful.  Any non perishable item or hams margarine, eggs, potatoes and monetary donations are useful. Non-perishable food items may be dropped off at the Academy building, the Year Round Library, and at the Pantry during open hours.  Monetary donations may be brought in to the Pantry or mailed to the address listed below.


As always, the volunteers at the Gilmanton Food Pantry & Thrift Shop as well as those whom we serve are grateful for the support of the community.


Don’t forget that the Thrift Store is open to the public and November sale is fill a bag for $5.00.
