Marlborough – The Marlborough Community Cupboard, a service of the United Way of Tri-County, in partnership with a dedicated group of parent volunteers and administrators from Marlborough Public Schools, is pleased to announce the Stuff-A-Bus Campaign. This year students, Marlborough residents and local businesses will collect bags of food and toiletries from the community with the goal of collecting over 15,000 pounds of food.
Carol Phipps is the manager of the Marlborough Community Cupboard (MCC).
“Our goal is not only to meet the previous record, but to surpass it,” Phipps said. “It is so wonderful seeing these children donate their time for us and a great way to get them involved in helping their community.”
The items collected by the students will be loaded on to a bus and delivered to the MCC. The drive is scheduled for Monday, June 18, and Tuesday, June 19. The effort will have a direct impact on the resources offered by the MCC and fortify it during the summer months, when many regular sources of donations often stall.
The Stuff-A-Bus program is an annual event. Food, toiletries and financial help are needed to continue to support the endeavor. For more information on the Stuff-A-Bus program, contact Barbara LaGrenade at 508-370-4873.
