Holliston Pantry Shelf Selects Two Student Board Members

by Press Release
November 8, 2018

Seniors Riley Clyde Alex Colburn, Alex Naya, Jason Rivera, and junior Cal Raymer

Five Additional HHS Teens Selected for Volunteer Positions

November 5, 2018 - The Holliston Pantry Shelf Board of Directors announced the addition of two Student Board Members, Holliston High School (HHS) juniors Mackenzie Underwood and Brendon Geary. The students will serve in this leadership position for a two-year term, and will serve as the primary liaisons between the Holliston Pantry Shelf and the Holliston High School community. To be considered for these positions, students must fill out an application describing their volunteer and leadership experience, as well as interview with Holliston Pantry Shelf Board members. Brendon and Mackenzie will be mentored by HHS Seniors Alexis Murphy and Cameron Todd, who were elected to two-year Student Board Member positions in 2017.

“We are delighted to choose these two vibrant individuals, both of whom stood out to us through their previous volunteer experience, communication skills, and their sincere desire to help the Pantry community,” said Keely Krantz, Vice President of the Holliston Pantry Shelf. “We know that Mackenzie and Brendon will work together to mobilize the enthusiasm of their fellow students to deliver successful food drives and to help make our fundraisers and community outreach events a success.”

In addition to the Student Board Membership positions, Holliston Pantry Shelf also selected six additional students to fill volunteer positions. Seniors Riley Clyde, Alex Colburn, Alex Naya, Jason Rivera, and junior Cal Raymer were selected to serve bi-weekly shifts working directly with Pantry shoppers to select food and stock shelves.

“These young volunteers are conscientious, caring and we commend them for the many hours they devote to helping our Pantry operations run smoothly,” said Steve Bradford, President of the Holliston Pantry Shelf.

Each September, the Holliston Pantry Shelf solicits student volunteers via applications that are emailed to all Holliston High School juniors and seniors through the guidance department. Volunteers positions for students include weekly or bi-weekly two-hour pantry shifts in addition to the two Student Board Member positions. In addition, any student at Holliston High School is eligible to sign up to volunteer at Holliston Pantry Shelf fundraisers and community service events, including the annual Dinner with Santa event as well as the SOUPerbowl fundraiser.

Holliston Pantry Shelf, founded in 1993, serves more than 200 families and is located at 73 Charles Street. The Holliston Pantry Shelf is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit food pantry that serves Holliston residents.
