[ARCHIVED] Donate Food & Touch a Truck Tomorrow!


Touch and fill the Department of Public Works (DPW) trucks on Saturday, May 22!

Celebrate National Public Works week as we recognize the outstanding efforts of the Wellesley DPW staff and take part in a food drive to benefit the Wellesley Food Pantry. 

A variety of trucks will be open for visitors to explore during the Touch a Truck event from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at DPW Headquarters (20 Municipal Way). Peek into dump trucks, front loaders, and perhaps even a fire truck or a police cruiser. Bring a non-perishable food donation to help fill a bucket or a truck bed. 

Also on Saturday, RDF users can fill a truck with non-perishable food at the book exchange area.

Food Pantry logoAll donated food will go to the Wellesley Food Pantry which currently serves approximately 400 clients in about 200 households in Town. One third of clients are children 18 years old and younger. Suggested donations include:

Chicken Broth, low sodium or no salt                   Almond Milk, plain, unsweetened

Canned Salmon                                                         Laundry Detergent
