As a long-time supporter of the Food Pantry and a friend and colleague of many of the employees there I can't say enough about how this place is all about community and helping people to help themselves. My most recent experience is working out a volunteer opportunity for a family member who is mentally challenged but eager to be useful. The food pantry staff have embraced her and given her self-worth that is immeasurable!

The Great!

I contribute to the food pantry and organize drives regularly . . . the amount of food that goes through the pantry is amazing!

I have been a volunteer for the Summer Park's Lunch Program for the past couple of years and am proud to be a very small part of such an amazing organization. My two oldest children and I put the nutrional and well-balanced lunches together once a week and drop them off to one of our city playgrounds. There is no better feeling than the feeling we get from those smiling faces and big thank you's that we receive every week from the children at our assigned playground. It makes me feel so good to know that there is an organization like Bootstraps in our community to help those in need!

The Great!

As a Board Member of Beverly Bootstraps, I have watched the staff and volunteers change the lives of thousands of people over the many years of my involvement. Bootstraps is a facile organization, able to adjust to the needs of any client who arrives. When a woman arrived after hours carrying her baby, fleeing a violent situation, our outreach worker filled bags with baby supplies, food and clothing. She then followed the woman to her destination to drop the bags off, as there was no baby seat in her car. The students in the GED program were missing class because of babysitting needs, so a babysitter was budgeted for that time slot. Bootstraps began as a food pantry in a church basement. As the clients needs evolved, so has the organization. Bootstraps seeks to Embrace, Educate and Empower those in need in our community.

The Great!
