Marlborough Community Cupboard seeks public's help for holiday initiative

By Bonnie Adams, Government Editor

Marlborough – Local and state government officials, as well as members of the community, joined the staff of the United Way of Tri-County's Marlborough Community Cupboard for its grand reopening Wednesday, Oct. 24.

The Cupboard is instrumental is proving food, clothing and books to families in need throughout the city. Thanks to an expansion and renovation at its 255 Main St. location, the organization's space is now doubled its previous size. That is important, Paul Mina, the president and CPO of the United Way of Tri-County said, because the organization has seen the population it serves double as well.

“There are many who are underemployed and they face the decision every week if they can buy food,” he said.

The United Way of Tri-County is asking for the public's help over the next month with its new initiative, “Feed-A-Family for Fifty”. Local residents, businesses and schools are asked to donate $50 to the organization. That money will then be used to purchase up to six bags of food for a family in need so that they may have a full Thanksgiving dinner. The group's goal is to provide the food for the 3000 families it services in the MetroWest/495 Corridor. For more information on how to help go to www.uwotc.org/feed4fifty.
