Salem Volunteers Newsletter - January 16, 2018

Newsletter Archives

To receive this weekly newsletter by e-mail, please contact

We've hit the January lull, that stretch with fewer scheduled events than usual. But the North Shore Moving Market and at Joseph's Storehouse Food Pantry carry on; volunteer this week and next week.

You can always help your neighbors in the snow or commit to shoveling out a local fire hydrant or wheelchair ramp.

The Peabody Essex Museum has discontinued the PEM/PM series, but other programming will take its place; watch this space for information on volunteering.

The newsletter will not go out next week, but be sure to keep an eye on our web site and our Facebook page for late-breaking news, and check our organizations page to find an ongoing volunteer position.

This Week

Wednesday, January 17: North Shore Moving Market

The North Shore Moving Market (NSMM) is a free food, free delivery service operating to assist low-income elderly, handicapped, and disadvantaged individuals and families. The NSMM delivers groceries monthly to nearly 200 households in local communities. The NSMM is also the only mobile market that includes pet food with regular delivery.

We all need to be fed. Here's how you can feed and be fed!

Volunteers are needed to help deliver groceries on Wednesday mornings from approximately 9am until noon. Come and learn the side roads of Salem, see first hand how your volunteering helps, and hear a heartfelt "God bless you." All you need is a car and a warm heart!
