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
The Covid-19 Pandemic has exponentially increased the number of requests for food and financial help. Any donation you make is appreciated and will help us meet those needs. Currently we are not able to take any food donations at the advice of the Board of Health, given that the virus can be transmitted on a variety of surfaces. Any amount of money donated is truly appreciated.
The People to People Food Pantry is a member of the Greater Boston Food Bank, which allows us to buy food and other necessities for an average of $.35 cents on the dollar. Therefore, your $1 donation will buy about $3 worth of food. As a volunteer organization, 100% of your money goes to meeting the needs of the residents of Danvers; young, old, children and families.
You can donate by CLICKING HERE or you can send a check to: Danvers People to People Food Pantry P.O. Box 2076 Danvers, MA 01923.
THANK YOU DANVERS!
Thank you to the Town Manager, Steve Bartha for his direction, and for the many employees of the Town of Danvers who have been stepping up to volunteer at the People to People Food Pantry; packing bags and delivering food to the doorsteps over a hundred (and growing) households. A shout out to Aaron Henry, Director of Land Use & Community Development and his staff for leading the charge on this front and a special thank you to Pam Parkinson, Director of Senior and Social Services and her team for reaching out to Danvers' most vulnerable residents.
The DCC would also like to thank our many business and community partners in the community; churches, organizations, schools, banks, businesses and individuals who, year in and year out, are there to keep us going.
Wishing everyone a safe and healthy journey through this difficult time.
