Our Impact on the Greater Brockton Community
The Charity Guild Food Pantry now serves as many as 22,000 residents in the Greater Brockton area every year. This marks a 50% increase in Food Pantry clients since prior to the pandemic. Approximately 33% of these are children and 25% are senior citizens. The need continues to grow rapidly, especially for those who are homebound.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, The Charity Guild was serving more than 1,000 clients with an average of 32 new households each month. The number of new households has increased drastically each month, and shows no sign of slowing down. Deliveries to the homebound tripled in just the first three months of the pandemic. The number of homebound households that needs our assistance continues to increase every month.
The Charity Guild needs your support more than ever before. We count on the charitable hearts of our friends, members and generous donors to support our mission to serve those in need.
