Grafton Food Bank Annual Appeal - March 2017
The Grafton Food Bank/Friends in Grafton Inc., has been in existence for over twenty years. The primary goal of our non-profit organization is food relief, referrals and emergency utilities support for local individuals. In addition to supplying food pantry offerings monthly for Grafton families, we distribute food baskets and gifts to families during the holiday season. This past year, 117 local families and 108 children enjoyed a brighter Christmas due to the generosity of the Grafton community.
In an effort to continue to provide this relief for our neighbors in need, we rely on the generosity of individuals, local businesses and organizations. We ask you to make a commitment to support our annual appeal by making a monetary donation. Contributions will be gratefully accepted through PayPal or via mail (PO Box 324, Grafton, MA 01519). Your gift will help sustain the Grafton Food Bank and benefit the community we live in. We thank you for your consideration and support.
We also assist families with utility bills if the person is in danger of disconnection. We expect that you will also seek other assistance that is available, such as SNAP, SMOC or other outside sources.
If you are a resident of Grafton in need of food, you are eligible to access the Grafton Food Bank at our regular “shopping” times, or in an emergency, call to make arrangements. You may use the food bank once a month. Download the Application for Assistance and bring it to the Food Bank with proof of residency (copy of a current utility bill, lease agreement, letter from your landlord, or copy of your license) during the Food Bank hours. We request that you give us updated household information once a year.
The Friends in Grafton, Inc. / Grafton Food Bank is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing food relief to Grafton residents. We strive to offer services with compassion and respect to all. We are aware of the struggles found in daily life, and we seek to lighten that burden.
