The Purple Pantry Boxes team is comprised of family, friends, and community members.
Our Director and Founder Susan Brown is joined by our Chief Financial Officer Aaron Brown Ortiz, and Media Executive Tyler Brown-Ortiz. Our pantry box builder is Chris Grejtak. Larry Woodcock serves as our deployment specialist. The signs on our boxes are designed by Denise Lukienchuk.
We also have an outstanding group of volunteers. They do an incredible amount of work for us including but not limited to; distributing food, maintaining pantry boxes, scouring store circulars for sales, working and creating food drives, and knitting hats.
Our motto is; take what you need and donate if you can.
We want people to have easy access to staple food items while also engaging members of the community to donate.
Beginning way back in March 2020 with one single box and a dream, we have now grown in a little over one year to eleven boxes in the Milford/Bridgeport area. Stay tuned!
We are now officially a 501 (c) (3) non profit organtication. That means that upon request we will gladly provide receipts for tax purposes.
