Join Us in our Local Food Pantry Drive
Poli Mortgage Group is very proud to present a new giving initiative under our Poli Cares Campaign umbrella. Beginning in April 2014, we will launch the first community service program, a local Food Drive. All employees at Poli Mortgage Group, along with our local food drive partners are very excited to pay it forward and personally give back to those in need. Our Food Drive will support the local food pantries in Norwood, Walpole and Canton, Massachusetts.
Our expectation is to collect an abundance of non-perishable items to help fight hunger in our communities through our efforts and by partnering with local businesses.
Learn more about the pantries that we will be supporting:
The Ecumenical Community Food Pantry of Norwood, Inc. serves over 350 families in Norwood and Westwood. The mission of the Ecumenical Community Food Pantry of Norwood, Inc. is to provide emergency food to people in need.

The Walpole Community Food Pantry gathers and distributes free food and other necessities for home consumption to eligible Walpole residents based on economic need and availability.
