2011 – Better Business Bureau Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics
Each year, the BBB Torch Awards program helps illuminate the importance of a marketplace where buyers and sellers can trust each other. The BBB Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics honors businesses that have demonstrated the highest standards and practices and consistently raise the bar when it comes to cultivating ethical buyer-seller relationships. When it comes to establishing a sense of trust, these companies excel on all levels — among their employees, with their customers and throughout their communities. Ultimately, the award strives to celebrate the businesses that epitomize a corporate conscience and responsibility: those that aim always to do what is right and fair.
2008 – Builder’s Association of Central Massachusetts Remodeler of the Year
Sandi L. Fischer Food Pantry, Millbury, MA
2012 75 lbs
2011 100 lbs
About the Pantry:
Twenty-Five years ago two members of Millbury Federated Church started its’ food pantry in a shopping cart located in the back of the church for members who were short on food. Fast forward a few years and the church’s Mission team changed the food pantry to a community outreach program, providing food for residents of Millbury and the surrounding communities. We went from being open one morning a week to opening two mornings a week (Monday and Wednesday 9-12). Our pantry is self sufficient and depends on donations from our parishioners and others in the town who see the need and want to help. As the need grew we could no longer provide food to the surrounding communities and three years ago had to limit the pantry to just Millbury residents. In 2009 we lost one of the founders of the food pantry to cancer and renamed tour pantry to the Sandi L Fischer Food pantry to honor her. We’ve gone from helping 10 to 15 people a week to 25 to 30. Last year we had 1,140 visits to our pantry and this year we see about 25 to 30 a week—times are tough and the need is greater than ever.
