SUPPORT OUR FOOD PANTRY
The need for healthy food is becoming greater for so many families, and we are doing our best to help. The South Shore YMCA Germantown Neighborhood Center Food Pantry has been providing low-income households in Quincy with fresh and non-perishable foods since 2006. Our Food Pantry allows us to assist by providing households with a week’s worth of groceries, providing critical support to hundreds of families each month. The Food Pantry is open year-round, two mornings per week to accommodate different schedules.
Donations can be made online or mailed to South Shore YMCA, 75 Mill Street, Hanover, MA 02339, ATTN: Development.
