Giving Back to Insure Nobody Goes Hungry
In the spirit of giving back to the community, Page Insurance has enjoyed taking an active role in serving the Guilford Food Bank (GFB). Through the years, we’ve been volunteering our time and donating to the GFB on a regular basis. While our involvement has led to personal and emotional fulfillment, most importantly our effort is helping to put a stop to hunger in our community.
Available to residents in need, who show proof of Guilford residency, the GFB offers non-perishable and perishable food, cleaning supplies and toiletries. Servicing 250 to 300 households annually, the GFB helps 50-75 families each month (not all families are the same each month). And, while the GFB welcomes those in need to walk-in, a voucher from GSS is required for a second trip.
Food donations are accepted at Palumbos’ Automotive & Big Y Collection Box during their regular business hours, as well as the GFB on Fridays from 9am until noon. Food distribution is Fridays, 3pm to 4pm, and Saturdays, 9am to 11am.
An invaluable resource for the Guilford community, the GFB wouldn’t be possible without the its many volunteers. For more information, call 203-453- 8009(GSS) or 203-453-8359(GIM) and visit the GFB’s Facebook page, where weekly needs are posted.
