Gathering Change Annual Meeting Is Tonight

Local nonprofit group meets and honors volunteers at 7 p.m. at Old Meeting House.

The following is an announcement from Gathering Change, Inc.

The Third Annual Meeting of , Inc. will be held on Wednesday, November 9, 2011, 7 p.m. at the Lynnfield Meeting House in Lynnfield.   All are welcome to join us as we highlight this past fiscal year and celebrate our many generous volunteers who assist us in supporting our neighborhood food pantries.  Our honored guest will share her personal experiences with food pantry services.  Light refreshments will be served.

Young, old and in-between can collect their spare change and donate it to Gathering Change, Inc. who in turn gives the money to community and social programs in the town where it was collected.  GCI has offered many people in our local communities (individuals, families, students and groups of all kinds) an opportunity to give in a way that is manageable financially and also makes a difference in people’s lives.   Because of the hard economic times in recent years, Gathering Change, Inc. has funneled it’s donations to food pantries.   As awareness of GCI and its mission has expanded, more and more businesses, faith communities and schools in an ever-increasing number of towns have been involved in fundraisers and food and clothing drives.   Approximately 40 towns have benefited from donations by their neighbors through Gathering Change, Inc.

The Lynnfield Meeting House is on the Lynnfield Common which lies between Main and Summer Streets in Lynnfield (proper address is 617 Main Street).  Parking is available in front of the library or in the town hall parking lot.  For more information or to RSVP call: 781-334-6773 or write: chanshaw@gatheringchangeinc.org .  For general information about Gathering Change, Inc., please see our website at www.gatheringchangeinc.org .  Hope to see you at this fun and informative evening on November 9.
