Volunteer this week at the SalemRecycles book swap on Saturday. There are two shifts to choose from, running in the morning and early afternoon.

The North Shore Moving Market and Joseph's Storehouse Food Pantry are running as usual this week.

Yesterday was the last day to sign up to help at the Salem Film Fest, and their volunteer roster is full. With many events to attend and films to watch, there are other ways to take part, so be sure to get out and enjoy the festival.

Today is a good day to check the map of Salem fire hydrants and find any near you to clear; remember also sidewalk ramps and neighbors who might need a hand.

This Week

Wednesday, March 14: 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!
