Change for Change

7-Eleven employees, clockwise from bottom left, Sonja Berg, Cheryl Slater and Charles Able presented Bread for Life Food Pantry Executive Director Monique Raposa, at right, with 660 pounds of food and a monetary donation of $1,460 late last month. Berg said the money came from a three-week Change for Change campaign at eight area 7-Eleven franchises owned by Amr Hassan, including three Gloucester stores. Raposa said the pantry received over 4,000 pounds of local food donations in April, which was more than usual. She said finding meat for the pantry is a difficulty at this time. The pantry will conduct its next drive-through community distribution on May 25 in the Newington Baptist Church parking lot.
