Letter to the Editor: Thanks for Turkey Distribution Day

Our motto is “Neighbors helping neighbors.” Sunday’s distribution day was a perfect example.


Dear Editor,

Please share the news of our gratitude to all the volunteers, organizations and sponsors who helped distribute Thanksgiving turkeys and the fixings to over 130 families, clients of the Dedham Food Pantry.

First Church of Dedham generously opened its doors for food to be stocked and distributed. Downey Trucking delivered the turkeys and baskets from the staff and students of Personal Best Karate.

Folks from First Church, Noble and Greenough School, other communities of worship, and neighbors near and far pitched in for a grand effort on Sunday November 18.

The Dedham Food Pantry has been working to meet one of the most basic of human needs for more than 20 years. An organization staffed by only volunteers, we rely on the charitable support of our local community. Our motto is “Neighbors helping neighbors.” Sunday’s distribution day was a perfect example.

It is through the generosity of people and sponsors near and far, that we are able to help our clients enjoy a day of giving thanks. We could not meet the needs of these families without the generous spirit and kindness of all the people who played a part, no matter how small. We are lucky indeed to be able to share our gifts.


Lindsay Barich
Dedham Food Pantry
