Touch and fill your favorite Department of Public Works (DPW) trucks on Saturday, May 22!
Celebrate National Public Works week as we recognize the outstanding efforts of the Wellesley DPW staff and take part in a food drive to benefit the Wellesley Food Pantry.
A variety of trucks will be open for visitors to explore during the Touch a Truck event from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at DPW Headquarters (20 Municipal Way). Peek into dump trucks, front loaders, and perhaps even a fire truck or a police cruiser. Bring a non-perishable food donation to help fill a bucket or a truck bed.
A second fill a truck will be located in the book exchange area at the Recycling and Disposal Facility (RDF).
All donated food will go to the Wellesley Food Pantry which currently serves approximately 400 clients in about 200 households in Town. One third of clients are children 18 years old and younger. Suggested donations include:
Chicken Broth, low sodium or no salt Almond Milk, plain, unsweetened
Canned Salmon Laundry Detergent
Canned Beets Dinty Moor Beef Stew
Prunes Peanut Butter in Plastic Jars
Soy Milk, plain, unsweetened Vegetable oil
When exploring our DPW trucks, please remember to cover your face if you can't remain distant from others. Surfaces will be cleaned throughout the day.
