FCCMP relies on the generous donations of all our donors and patrons, in order to continue our mission of feeding our community, even in the face of a local – and global – pandemic. Giving Tuesday, the annual event that spotlights work like ours and appeals to the community to consider online donations during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday shopping season in the fall, is one such important fundraising opportunity for us. That auspicious donation event date is now being moved up, as we are in immediate need of donation support.
Today it was announced that #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of giving and unity, is set to take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. The global day of action will rally people around the world to tap into the power of human connection and strengthen communities at the grassroots level. Together, we will take action on behalf of first responders, as well as the world’s other – often forgotten – frontline workers: the nonprofits and community organizations that feed, house, educate, and nurture neighbors impacted by the global pandemic.
Our hope is that this mobilization will demonstrate the power of generosity to heal a frightened world.

$39,455 donated so far today to benefit North Quabbin food pantries. As our Food-A-Thon winds down, we want to thank everybody for their donations and all of the volunteers who helped put this together. In the face of a global crisis, our community once again bands together to fight hunger. It is always when we have less that we seem to give more and we are truly humbled.
Please remember that we are accepting donations online, by check and at Hannafords through the end of May. When all is counted, we will post a final total!
We want to give huge thank you to all of the volunteers who work in the food pantries to serve the people who are in need. In the face of this pandemic, your work is critical and you are appreciated. ... See MoreSee Less
