Food Bank DONATIONS- COVID-19 Update
During this challenging time, many members of our community are in need of emergency food and other daily essentials such as utilities and shelter. The Glastonbury Gives program encompasses the food bank, fuel bank, and other town assistance programs, and the current pandemic circumstances have led to an increased demand for these programs. Glastonbury Social Services is currently seeking MONETARY DONATIONS to the Glastonbury Gives program, and all funds will be allocated to the Food Bank, Fuel Bank, and other assistance programs based on real-time community need. Monetary donations are requested in lieu of non-perishable food items and other contributions to minimize social contact. Fiscal donations provide the opportunity to purchase grocery gift cards and fund the fuel bank and other programs that support the essential needs of eligible community members.
