Sponsor-A-Basket Arlington


Our names are Anshul Shirude, Ayush Shingavi and Sagar Rastogi. We are three high school students looking to make a change for the families who need the most help in uncertain times.   

Around the nation, the pandemic has changed the situation across all of our states. Food pantries are working hard to ensure they can feed the families who need our help. Recently, the Burlington food pantry reached out to us and were in immediate need for food. Originally, they used to serve 25-30 families per day but they now serve over 57 families daily, and the number is rising everyday. With an increased burden on the food pantries, they need more food. We have made it our mission to provide assistance to the food pantries and their families. Over the last two weeks, we accumulated a total of $1597 and were able to donate all of that in food to the Burlington Food Pantry. We have also expanded our campaign to the Lexington, Tewksbury, and Bedford food pantries! We would like to continue this mission to Arlington, therefore we have taken on the initiative to serve families in need at the Arlington Food Pantry.

We have generated a list of 10 items to include in our “Sponsor-A-Basket.” Each basket will cost around $13 to serve approximately 250 residences. Any donations which we receive are greatly appreciated and will be reflected with personalized messages from you on each basket. Please help and support us to work in this mission together. Thank you so much for your time and I hope we can start the mission together!

List of items :
Cereal, canned diced tomatoes, canned green beans, macaroni & cheese, dried beans, canned fruit, salad dressing, soy/almond milk, brown paper bags, and canned soup.

We were wondering if you could contribute a basket and share our GoFundMe link to others and via social media platforms so they can donate and we can start this mission:
