We're always looking for donations for the pantry. Some suggestions include: dried, packaged food such as cup of soups, tea/hot chocolate/coffee, porridge, dried fruit, cakes and granola bars. Toiletries like toothbrushes, soap and deodorant are great, too. Dried goods and things that won't freeze or melt are great ways to fill the pantry during the winter and summer months. Donations can be put directly into the pantry 24/7 or dropped-off inside the library during operating hours. And please remember, the pantry is accessible to everyone, 24/7.
BUPL is the satellite office for The Women's Sexual Assault Centre of Renfrew County. If you or someone you know is in need of support services, please don't hesitate to contact BUPL or Jancy Brown direct at firstname.lastname@example.org.
