The following announcement was provided by the Watertown Food Pantry:
The Watertown Food Pantry assists approximately 125 families/250 individuals per week, for a total distribution benefit of approximately 13,000 persons across the year with their food insecurity.
In addition to food assistance, pantry clients are in need of hygiene products, which are essential for healthy living, but not covered by assistance programs like SNAP and WIC. Therefore, many are not able to purchase basic toiletries.
In celebration of Father’s Day, the Watertown Food Pantry is seeking donations of razors and shaving cream in support of client’s hygiene needs until June 18th.
Donations are being accepted every day at the Watertown Fire Station at 99 Main Street, weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Watertown Senior Center at 31 Marshall St. or Tuesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Watertown Food Pantry at 80 Mt. Auburn St.
Inquires about this donation drive or generally about client hygiene needs should be directed to the Watertown Senior Center at 617-972-6490 or SeniorCenter@watertown-ma.gov.
