Every year at this time we direct our focus toward helping those in need. This year we will be delivering coats to Action, Inc. Shelter in Gloucester, shopping for our local food pantry, buying children's books for Ipswich Caring and sponsoring a gift tree for Ipswich Humane Group. Visit our office at 16 Market Street, Ipswich, across from Family Dollar during business hours which are Monday through Friday 9am-5pm and Saturdays 9am-3pm. Donate gently worn, adult winter clothing and/or non-perishable food items including paper products and personal hygiene items. Some examples of items in need: Peanut butter, cereal, canned soup, canned chicken/tuna, canned fruit, healthy snacks, such as granola bars, raisins, dried fruit and graham crackers, shampoo, deodorant, razors, toothpaste, toothbrushes. Please make sure food has not expired. Click here for a list of hunger relief programs across Essex County. All donations we receive will be delivered to the Ipswich Community Food Pantry.
