Danvers Community Council
The Danvers Community Council was established in the early 1950s and continues today. The Council meets regularly and works together with local agency representatives, town government leaders and local business people to help Danvers residents in need without duplicating efforts.
When emergency assistance is needed, the Council refers to available resources, or in some cases, helps directly.
The Danvers Community Council is a not-for-profit charitable organization. It is supported by the town of Danvers, local businesses and service organizations, and the generosity of Danvers residents. The Council also works cooperatively with the town's Social Service Department.
How You Can Help
Thanks to everyone who helped with the school supplies for our Back to School Backpack Program. We assisted 90+ families and we couldn’t even sharpen our pencil without you!
The People to People Food Pantry is asking for $15 Gift Card donations to Market Basket or Stop & Shop for our ThanksGiving Turkey drive. This change was made last year because we do not have enough space in our refrigerators to store so many birds, and the gift card allows our shoppers to buy to meet their dietary needs. If you would like to buy a gift card for donation, you can drop them off at the Pantry 12 Sylvan Street or Senior Center 25 Stone Street.
As the Holiday Season approaches, the Pantry will also be looking for folks who want to sponsor a child. We will be providing gifts for young children and $50 (or $25) Target gift cards for high school aged kids. Call the Pantry to sign up to help our families in need this Christmas – (978)739-4188.
Stop & Shop is a great community partner providing financial support and donating food on a regular basis to the Pantry. Our thanks to Danvers Store Manager, Pat Hickey and his staff; Erica Bomba, Dave Kawiecki, Adam Bushway and Bob Medeiros (pictured Left to Right) for their generosity and hard work.
