Season of Giving
This Thanksgiving holiday season, the SERVPRO team of Biddeford-Saco & The Sebago Lake Region, donated two dozen turkeys to The Stone Soup Food Pantry. A big thank you to Biddeford Hannaford for supplying our purchase! Brian & Manny were amazing employees in helping make this happen!
The pantry has officially reached their goal of 200 turkeys! That is 200 hundred families that maybe once thought they wouldn’t be able to celebrate the holiday are now going to be able to have a thanksgiving meal.
The pantry has been around for nearly 25 years and is continuing to thrive offering a reliable place for people to receive food. Their mission is to help the less fortunate in ALL the surrounding communities and not only for Biddeford residents, which is what makes them unique. They are one hundred percent volunteer based which is truly amazing. They always welcome anyone to help so if you are interested in volunteering or would like to make a donation, contact Co-Director, Michelle Gionest.
“If you are really thankful, what do you do? You share.” –W. Clement Stone
It is often easy for some of us to forget that the holiday season is not always the easiest and cheerful for some. Giving back to your community, either by buying gifts, donating warm clothing or food to a local pantry will truly give you the real meaning of the holidays. Don’t forget how fortunate you are and kind in mind that someone out there may not be as fortunate.
We encourage you to stop in and visit the wonderful pantry, donate or even volunteer. Be sure to visit their website stonesouppantry.org and tune in on their upcoming TV series!
