Loaves & Fishes
Loaves & Fishes is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in 1983 to help our Ayer, Devens, Groton, Harvard, Littleton, and Shirley neighbors in need. They offer assistance to families who are struggling, by providing the opportunity for them to shop for groceries up to twice a month. More than 350 volunteers help over 900 client families from our service area.
At HUUC the first Sunday of each month is Loaves & Fishes Sunday. Parishioners bring contributions of food and personal care items to the Sanctuary foyer and church volunteers will deliver them to the Devens location. See below for the next collection date and what their current urgent need is. In these economic times, the pantry is seeing record numbers of people coming for assistance, and they need our help.
For the month of October, please bring in condiments such as ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, pickles and salad dressing.
If you have other items you would like to donate, Loaves and Fishes will gratefully accept those as well.
Thank you for your generosity and support!
