There will soon be a new food pantry in Brewer!  The Brewer Area Food Pantry will have a special opening this Monday, November 25th, at 225 North Maine Street, right next to Joe's Gulf.  Their goal is to hand out 50 Thanksgiving Day boxes between 10am and noon.  The boxes will include turkey and all the fixings!

Recipients of the boxes will have to fall within Federal Poverty Guidelines, people will have to fill out paperwork to see if they qualify.

Regular hours for the Brewer Area Food Pantry will begin in December  During the first four weeks of every month, the Pantry will be open Wednesdays and Fridays, 10am until noon, and then 6 until 8m on the fourth Thursday of the month.

Volunteers are needed to get the operation off the ground and to keep it going.  To volunteer or to donate, you can contact Brenda Leavitt at 848-5804 ext. 1208, or email
