The Andover Food Pantry will be having several holiday projects over the next few weeks to help area families in need. Thanksgiving Baskets will be distributed on Friday, Nov. 16, since Thanksgiving is very early this year, on the 22nd. Baskets will be assembled sometime on Thursday and help is needed for this project. Once again the “Star Project” will provide Christmas gifts for children in the community. The pantry group volunteers will be at the Tin Mountain Round-up at Sunday River on Saturday and Sunday of this week to collect canned goods, which will be given to the pantry to help stock the shelves. They will need help unloading these items at Andover and then stocking the shelves. If you have some time to aid in this important community project, please call Linda Couture at 364-7968. The food pantry will not be open on Tuesday, Nov. 20, as baskets will be picked up on the previous Friday.
