The Chatham Public Library would like to thank our community for their generous support during our recent Food Drive. Staff made 5 separate deliveries to the Chatham & Ghent Food Pantries, amounting to hundreds of pounds of food stuffs, pet food, sundries and personal items.
Due to the success of our community’s donations, the Chatham Food Pantry has arranged to continue the drive and will be making weekly stops to collect donations!
