Review for The Open Door/Cape Ann Food Pantry, Inc., Gloucester, MA, USA
The Open Door has the greatest respect among members of our community - one visit to their pantry reveals why. I had the opportunity to drop off provisions left over from an event and discovered a great "organization" that was all about serving people in need by offering them healthy meals. Besides the dedicated and caring staff, I was impressed with the raised vegetable gardens outside - can't get much healthier than that! Recently I volunteered at a fundraiser for the Open Door that was sponsored by local artist Betty Lou Schlemm. It was so exciting and humbling to play a small role in this effort while finally volunteering for such a worthy cause. It was especially meaningful to me because every year I look forward to the Empty Bowl Fundraiser and to meeting the staff and volunteers at the Open Door who make this event happen. They are such caring and selfless people. I always walk away with a great sense of gratitude and an awareness that we all need each other.
