Marlborough Community Cupboard Prepares for the Holiday Season
DOWNTOWN MARLBOROUGH- President and CEO of United Way of Tri-County, Paul Mina, said he expects to distribute more than 4.5 million pounds of food before the year is over. Since the coronavirus pandemic started, clients at all three locations in the Metrowest doubled.
On Tuesday, volunteers at the Marlborough Community Cupboard handed out more than 500 Thanksgiving meal boxes. The boxes included everything from a turkey to all the traditional fixings, even a pumpkin pie. But for many of the individuals picking up today, Thanksgiving looked a lot different last year. "A man said to me, last year I made a contribution and today, I am in the line. There's a great example of somebody's life who changed just like that", said Mina.
The coronavirus pandemic abruptly changed the lives of so many, causing a massive rise in food insecurity across the country. Mina said the best way to support UWTC and these individuals, a contribution. "A fifty dollar donation feeds a family of four. It's the best way to help, the best way to give and the best way to car", he said.
