Help from Our Friends

Open Table and the families we serve have so much to be thankful for this holiday season. We are overwhelmed with the outpouring of support from the community and the generosity of so many organizations and individuals who are running food drives, organizing fundraisers, and donating groceries to help our neighbors in need. With friends like these we can all get through these troubling times – with a little help from our friends. THANK YOU!

Willard School: The fifth grade class at Willard School in Concord collected, sorted, and boxed over 1209 pounds of food. The kids even checked the expiration dates of all items, assuring that everything is safe and ready to be delivered to our guests.

Maynard Golf Course: A recent charity tournament brought in over $1300 in donations that can provide grocery cards to keep food on our guests’ tables during the last week in December when Open Table is closed.
