Only one representative of each family is allowed to walk up, the rest will wait in their car, or be 6 feet apart, as per COVID-19 guidelines for safety. Each family is asked the number of children for the family, and the children come to and pick up the meals following social distancing guidelines, no signatures or paperwork to fill out is needed.
“Pembroke will prepare the meals and then place them into carry out containers, and Wright Center volunteers will pick them up, and provide the area for distribution following COID-19 guidelines,” Wright Center Director Judy Moore notes.
She is looking for help from community volunteers to help with the distribution. PPE will be provided. Also welcome are donations of PPE and hand sanitizer.
If you, or an organization, business, or church of which you are a part, are interested in helping in any way, please contact Judy Moore at email@example.com or call 716-536-1261.

Before attending for the first time, please call our free 24/7 helpline at 1-800-272-3900.
Foster Parents Baby Closet
Please help out Foster Parents for Emergency Home Pick Ups There is a Big Need for Help for Foster Parents, when a Foster Parents is called to Pick up a Baby in an emergency situation. When the call is received, the Foster Parents must go to pick up the child immediately. Many times the Foster Parent's are not notified with enough time, to pick up emergency supplies for the Baby. Having these Basic needs on hand, for Foster Parents, would enable them to pick up a Love Bag, that contains these basic necessities, as diapers, baby wipes, and bottles, and diaper bags. If you would like to help us, please donate any supplies for the Love Bags. Please drop them off at the C Dee Wright Community Center, or call Judy Moore, New Events Director for the C Dee Wright Community Center at 716-536-1261, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org If you would like to help out with this event by becoming a drop off destination, please contact Judy Moore. Thank You to the donor that donated these supplies to the Alden Food Pantry.
