Helping Neighbors During the Holidays

Westbrook Food Pantry

Donation Drive Benefits Local Food Pantry

WESTBROOK, ME (January 5, 2023) – The holidays are busy times for food pantries, and so the employees of Artel were excited to conduct a food drive to benefit the local Westbrook Food Pantry. Many families – including seniors, folks with health issues, single parents – are feeling pinched this holiday season, given inflation and the rising costs of food, as well as with the rising heating fuel costs during the winter. ‘Artelians’ were determined to help out and make things a little easier for their neighbors, collecting huge boxes full of food and essentials – all of which the Pantry was in need of.

Westbrook Food Pantry President Nancy Crump sent a note of appreciation, “We wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful donation. It was awesome, just such wonderful variety and quality, we will appreciate it so much, thank you!”

A large part of the spirit of the holiday season lies in giving and sharing, and we are happy to help keep these traditions alive through our efforts on behalf of local charitable organizations such as the WFP.
