We will be accepting items through Friday July 30, 2021 at the Local 1421 Union Hall @ 20 Carter Street REAR Tewksbury, MA during business hours Monday through Friday for the food drive we have organized with the help of @lazarushouseministries and @breadandroseslawrence
This is to help give back to 1421 Members and the Lawrence Community after all 2020 has put us through.
Lazarus House has been breaking the cycle of poverty in the Merrimack Valley Region since it opened its doors as an emergency homeless shelter in 1983. That’s almost 40 YEARS of giving back to the community. Less than 1% of their income is from government resources, so they genuinely rely on the generosity of donors.
Bread and Roses in Lawrence was founded in 1980, with their primary purpose being to ease the hunger in the Lawrence community by providing a warm, nutritious meal to 120-150 individuals five nights each week - over 50,000 meals in one year. Their emergency pantry and community outreach programs deliver over 100,000 pounds of food every year to those in need.
So now, with your help,
let’s lend a helping hand together.
In the summertime donations drop drastically,
we can help change this.
We will be hosting an event Sunday August 1, 2021 in Lawrence on the corner of Methuen and Appleton Street from 10AM-3PM. All will be welcome from Local 1421 members to the entire Lawrence community to come take what they need. All leftover portions will be donated between the Lazarus House Ministries’ Food Pantry & Bread and Roses.
Thank you for your time! Please share if you can, and bless you for considering a contribution in whatever way you can.
Have a safe & wonderful start to summer
