As families prepare to start the new school year, the North Reading Food Pantry and the North Reading Clothes Closet are seeking donations of juice boxes, children’s snacks, cereal, school supplies, and new and gently used clothes, particularly jeans, T-shirts, and jackets. Individuals who wish to donate food items may drop them off at Town Hall, Flint Memorial Library, or the North Reading Post Office. Clothes may be left in the pantry’s drop-off bin at Town Hall. Both the Food Pantry and the Clothes Closet are run by Christian Community Service of North Reading, a local nonprofit organization. Housed at North Reading Town Hall, 235 North St., the pantry is open from 9 to 10 a.m. every Monday and from 7 to 8 p.m. on the first and third Mondays of each month. For more information about the pantry or to make an appointment to select clothing items for your family, call Christian Community Service at 978-276-0040 or visit the Food Pantry’s website at www.nrfoodpantry.org. The Clothes Closet is housed at the Martin’s Pond Union Baptist Church, 4 Cogswell Road.
