GILMANTON — The Gilmanton Food Pantry and Thrift Shop will hold another bag sale in August. Patrons will be able to purchase a brown paper bag full of items for $5. If the items customers select are not enough to fill the bag, then they can buy them at half price.
The workers at the Pantry and Thrift Shop are grateful to those who participated in the recent Annual Yard Sale, whether by donating items, working at the sale and/or stopping by to browse and buy.
The Barnstead/Gilmanton Fire Explorers Post 900 recently held a food drive. As a result, they donated a big box of food items to the Food Pantry.
The program is also thankful to Mark Sisti and his family and friends for their recent generous donations of food and money in honor of Mark's birthday.
The Thrift Shop has partnered with the Helping Hands Shelter in Concord. Items that cannot go on our racks for sale due to tears, stains or other defects, the shelter can salvage many of these things to help the homeless in that community. As part of their outreach, Helping Hands needs tents and/or tarps. Tents, tarps, or other items that can assist in providing shelter can be brought to the Thrift Shop which will then arrange from them to be delivered to Helping Hands.
Correspondence and/or monetary donations should be mailed to Gilmanton Food Pantry, Post Office Box 16, Gilmanton, N.H. 03237. The Food Pantry and Thrift Shop are located at 1817 Route 140 in Gilmanton Iron Works. Parking and entrance to the Shop and Pantry is available at the Gilmanton Community Church parking lot. The hours are Mondays, 1-5 p.m.; Wednesdays, 3-7 p.m.; and Saturdays, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Telephone number: 603-364-0114.
