The Alleviating Hunger Committee
In August 2016, the Westbrook Council of Beaches established the Alleviating Hunger Committee to provide food to those in need and educate our community on hunger and poverty. Some of the initiatives include:
Options for contributing food:
Bring food donations to St. Mark's between 9 am and 12 noon on any Monday.
Bring food to COB meetings, and we will bring your donation to one of the food pantries.
Get in touch with the Alleviating Hunger Committee and we will arrange to pick up your food donation.
-Consider helping out at the Valley Shore YMCA Vegetable Garden. One way you could help is letting them know if you have any cardboard that they could use to lay the wood chips on top of. If you do, please email Jon Capozzoli at firstname.lastname@example.org. He is the new contact for all things to do with the garden. The Community Garden will open this year. It is vital to the Westbrook Food Pantry that they are able to grow fresh local produce for those in need. We hope
that even through the current situation you are all on board to join them for this growing season! (5-28-2020)
-COB has seven volunteers supporting the Friday Night meals at 6pm at the Westbrook Congregational Church.
-COB members can make monetary or gift card donations to support Westbrook families in need. If you would like to contribute, please contact Elizabeth Carpenter, Westbrook Social Services Coordinator at email@example.com. Her office is in Town Hall, next to the First Selectman’s Office. Her phone number is 860-399-3090.
The Committee is always looking for volunteers. If you have an interest or would like further information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org Our members are Mary Polchaninoff, Barbara Alessio, Kit Bishop,Tony Cozza, Andy Schatz and Jim Crawford. All have been great resources for us. Our student members are Juliana Frabreizi, Gavin Lebrec, Jackie Grace and Seth Caslin.
