July BLCC Food Drive To Assist The Jubilee Food Cupboard of Ware

Beaver Bytes

July 7, 2020

Beaver Bytes is an e-mail communication issued by the BeaverlakeCC.com website to inform website members about current BLCC news and upcoming events.


We are presently seeking contributions towards our third Jubilee Food Cupboard Food Drive starting Tuesday July 7 with delivery at Noon on Wednesday, July 15, 2020

Thank you for all your generous support!  Please see the attached thank you letter from the Jubilee Food Cupboard for your June donations.

The Jubilee Cupboard, an affiliated ministry of Ware’s Trinity Episcopal Church, provides monthly food assistance and is open Thursdays from 9:00am until noon.  Last year it served over 800 individuals and families by giving out more than 91,000 pounds of food.

According to Cheryl Vaugh, Executive Director of the Food Cupboard, at present, the COVID pandemic and its consequences have limited the capacities of the usual sources from which the Food Cupboard typically obtains its food supplies, and also is presenting a new problem, given school closures, namely, children at home for a greater part of the day and in need of snacks and lunches. The annual Letter Carriers Food Drive, in prior years, a major source of local donations (typically, 60-80 cases of canned goods and 40 flats of boxed goods) cannot take place this year. Thus, the Food Cupboard and the members of our community whom it serves are facing a serious challenge, RIGHT NOW.

The overall need, at present, that would supplement the resources available to the Food Cupboard from its regular suppliers can be addressed by donations of Canned Prepared Foods, such as chili, baked beans, Chef Boyardee type pasta meals, stews, soups, Hamburger Helper type products, and, also, for Kids’ Snacks, things like fruit cups, granola bars, trail mix, peanut butter and jam/jelly.   These are the most sought-after items in view of current limitations in the supply chain. BreadInstant Oatmeal, and other Boxed Cereals would be helpful, as well.

Given the option, the Cupboard would prefer smaller individual cans and boxes, to allow more widespread distribution. So, for example, a flat of a dozen small cans is preferable to, say, four large cans.  Larger quantities might be available for purchase at places like Costco or BJ’s, though they also may have limited supplies available.  So even if you see a limited quantity of the items for which you are looking at your usual grocery stores or even in your own cupboards, consider passing those along to the Food Cupboard.

To facilitate the actual delivery of supplies to the Cupboard, we ask that any donations be brought to 79 Beaver Rd on the lake (Poppels’) from which bulk deliveries will be made to the Food Cupboard.  We hope to make a delivery to the Cupboard on Wednesday, July 15, so please try to drop off your donations by Tuesday July 14.

  • The garage door will be open during the day with a table set up inside.
  • There will be cards and boxes on the table to separate food by categories.
  • Please place foods in the appropriate boxes.
  • If you have any spare boxes, we could use them for deliveries to the Cupboard, so please leave them under the table.
  • There will be a signup sheet for anyone willing to help with deliveries.
  • If any questions, or you need to set up a different time for food drop-offs, please call us at 413 262-1715 (Deborah) or 413 530-3815 (David) or email pops349@yahoo.com
  • We hope to continue this food drive for the next several months.  Thank you for helping those in need.

If a cash donation would be preferable for you, please make your checks payable to the Jubilee Food Cupboard and mail to Jubilee Cupboard, P.O. Box 447, Ware, MA 01082.  The Trinity Episcopal Church also runs a Diaper Bank that would welcome your contributions of diapers or cash (checks made out separately to the Jubilee Diaper Bank).

Thanks, and bless your hearts.

  • Chili or Stews

  • Pasta Meals

Fourth of July Boat Parade!

Calling all owners of pontoon boats, sailboats, kayaks and canoes…let’s decorate and parade around the lake on Saturday July 4th…that’s this weekend!  Decorate your watercraft any way you like…plain or fancy is just fine.  Among the participants in last year’s parade was the popular “Washington Monument”, and the THREE “bubble bathtubs”!  You do not have to register, but it will be a big help to me to know how many folks are participating.  

Let’s meet at West Beach at noon. I will give each participant a number. We will cruise around the lake two times, then stop at Judy Aversa’s house near East Beach. Medals will be handed out, as well as prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners! 

You do not have to register, but it will be a big help to me to know how many folks are participating.  See you on Saturday!  Any questions?  Call, text or email Lorrie Willette 413-237-3943 or lorwil@aol.com
