Food Pantry Food Drive

Posted: November 22nd, 2013

With the holiday season right around the corner, area food pantries are preparing for what is expected to be one of the most challenging and demanding times of the year. St. Joseph School in Fairhaven recently managed a food drive and collected boxes of canned goods and other nonperishable food items. Students from Grade 8 recently spent a day delivering and helping sort and bag items at the M.O. Life Food Pantry in New Bedford. The M.O. Life Organization (Murphy and Others Living Interdependently for Future Endeavors) was founded by Mr. Charlie Murphy, and offers assistance to people with disabilities. The organization offers support through employment, independent living, education, and community and social interactions. The M.O.Life Food Pantry was founded in 2000, and was thrilled to see young people wanting to help out and make a difference. For more information on making a contribution or volunteering, call 508-992-5978. Also, visit the M.O. Life website or facebook page for M.O. Food Pantry.
