Middleton Food Pantry – Jeans Day
Frank Leary founded the Middleton Food Pantry in 2010 after observing a growing need for food assistance in the Middleton community. The Middleton Council on Aging and Senior Service Center generously stepped up and donated space for the pantry. It's estimated that they have served over 350 Middleton families since it opened its doors.
North Shore Bank recently donated $1,100 to the pantry, proceeds were given by bank employees as part of the Bank's Jeans Day program. The Middleton Food Pantry is a self-sustaining, non-profit organization supported by private food donations. They raise funds solely for the continuance of their mission to feed needy families in their local community. All staff, including the directors, are volunteers and unpaid.
