The New Year is a good time for people to clean out their pantries. The Thurmont Food Bank can use all the donations you offer, as long as they are not outdated, not opened, and not going bad. Unopened hygiene and cleaning items would also be appreciated. Non-perishable donations can be placed in the cart in the entryway anytime, and perishable donations can be delivered on Tuesday or Friday (from 11:00 a.m-1:00 p.m.) when volunteers are present.
Volunteers are needed at 8:30 a.m. on the first Thursday of each month to unload and process food received from The Maryland Food Bank.
A huge “Thank You” goes out to the Thurmont Food Bank volunteers who put in hundreds of hours each month to provide food for people in need. In December, they gave out two weeks’ worth of food more than 410 times! Drop a thank you card off at the Thurmont Food Bank or mail it to P.O. Box 74, Thurmont, MD 21788, so they can fill up a gratitude wall and let the volunteers know how much they are appreciated!
