AIO Food & Energy Assistance is excited to announce plans for a Community Open House on Thursday, May 18, from 4:00 to 6:00 PM, at their 1A Gordon Drive, Rockland location. This event is open to the public, and there is no charge. Attendees can tour the facility and learn more about one of the few “market-model” food pantries in the United States. Pre-event private tours for groups of eight or more can be scheduled between 3:00 and 4:00 PM by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Samoset Resort in Rockport has generously offered to cater this event. “Having recently toured the AIO facility, I was so impressed by the quality of services and level of professionalism I felt everyone in the community should know about AIO,” said Samoset General Manager Connie Russell. “We are very proud to support their efforts and excited to be part of this wonderful event.”
To help plan the event, attendees to the Open House are asked to RSVP at www.AIO4me.org or by email to email@example.com. RSVPs are appreciated, but not required to attend. All community members are invited to come meet the board members, volunteers and staff that work together to execute AIO Food & Energy Assistance programs.
AIO Food & Energy Assistance currently provides food assistance to approximately 300 families each week and Weekend Meal packages to 465 families each week. In addition, AIO has provided 475 energy assistance gifts this past heating season and more than 25,000 diapers over the past year.
