WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Rotary Club of Williamstown made some upgrades to the Williamstown Food Pantry.

The club, with the help of funds from Rotary District 7890, spent Saturday, Oct. 10, refurbishing the storage area of the Food Pantry.  


The group addressed wide wooden shelving, which did not meet code. This was replaced with steel. Other shelving was covered to bring it into code. 


The club also donated a heavy-duty cart and a refrigerator to the food pantry. 

The pantry, which serves its host community as well as Hancock and Pownal, Vt., accepts donations non-perishable foods and personal care items 24 hours a day in the vestibule of the Sts. Patrick & Raphael Parish Center, where the pantry is housed.
