Stuff-A-Cruiser for the Shoreline Soup Kitchen

The Essex Community Fund and the Essex Police Department join together once again to Stuff-A- Cruiser for the Shoreline Soup Kitchen.  Volunteers will be stationed outside the IGA at Bokum Center on two evenings this Holiday season to gather food that will help prepare hundreds of meals. “Last year we collected approximately 2200 pounds of food and we hope to do even to better this year by filling three cruisers in three hours,” stated Officer Russ Gingras.

Come by on November 18 and December 16 between 4 and 7 pm.  Canned, boxed or jarred non-perishable food items are requested.  (Pasta, rice, sauces, cereals, canned fruits and vegetables, soups, peanut butter, jelly, etc.)  If you can’t stop by during the events, you can also drop your donations in the Soup Kitchen Box by the exit door of the IGA.  For further information call 860-767-1633.
