Types of Donations

In Memory Of – Make a cash donation in memory of a loved one who has passed away. The pantry is very touched by this thoughtfulness in times of sadness. A thank you is sent to the donor and an acknowledgement letter is sent to the family if a name and address is included with the donation.

In Honor Of – Make a cash donation in honor of something special, such as an anniversary, birthday, graduation, etc. This is a special way to give a gift that helps those in need. All donors receive a personalized thank you from the pantry, however, we do not send acknowledgements for these donations to your loved ones. Since this is a gift to someone special in the form of a donation, please send/give an appropriate card to the honoree honoring the celebration and specify that your gift is a donation to the pantry.

Events – Make a cash or food donation from funds raised at an event such as, family event, office challenges, sports event, holiday events, church related events, etc. Many people have done this and it has been well received. A thank you will be sent to the organizer of the event.

Fundraiser/Food Drives – Conduct a food drive at your school, church, work, organization, etc. See information above about making food donations. A thank you will be sent for all food donations. Please note that we unable to weigh your food at the pantry. If you need to know how many pounds of food your are donating please weigh it before it is delivered to the pantry or picked up by pantry volunteers.

Please note: As a non-profit food support organization for those less fortunate in Tewksbury, the Tewksbury Community Pantry generally takes no position on any political or social issues. We are grateful for all the support we get from the Tewksbury community, and we appreciate the creativity many people and groups demonstrate in supporting the pantry. Like many other charitable organizations, the pantry is not necessarily directly involved in the planning of, or the details of how or when people decide to donate to the pantry, and often is the recipient of fundraising donations long after the fundraising event itself has occurred.
