Open Pantry Community Services operates a Holiday Meals program, which provides a traditional holiday meal for anyone in need of a meal or for those who wish to spend Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter with others.
The Holiday Meals are served at the High School of Commerce, 415 State St., Springfield, MA 01105.
Through this program, volunteers also deliver meals to people who are homebound. Altogether, nearly 3,000 meals are served on these three days.
Please call (413) 737-5337 and leave your name if you can deliver a meal to someone who is unable to attend the dinner at the High School of Commerce.
There is adequate parking behind the school and you can enter through the (west) side door of the school. There will be people there to give you instructions.
Business sponsors are needed to help cover the expenses of this program. If you are interested in sponsoring, please contact Kim Kennedy at (413) 746-6241.
If you are interested in volunteering please call (413) 737-5337. Kitchen help, servers, drivers and clean up crews are all needed.
