PRINCETON — For the second year in a row, New Bedford Royal Neighbors of America made a generous donation to the MOPS’ Moms-Helping-Moms Pantry.

Every October, Royal Neighbors creates and delivers Baskets of Hope to service organizations that provide programs and assistance to women. This is known as Make a Difference Day. The donation included diapers, formula, bath supplies and other essentials for infants and children.

Many ladies showed to represent Royal Neighbors. Representing the pantry were Brianne Stachowiak, Melinda Petit-Homme, panty coordinator Elizabeth Arkels and Pamela Friel.

The pantry is a service of the Bureau County Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS), and helps families in need by supplying basic infant/toddler and small child clothing and essentials, and maternity clothing. The pantry has been in service for two years and is located in the back of the Landmark Realty building, 1221 N. Main St. in Princeton. Hours of operation are 8:30 to 10 a.m. Tuesdays and 3 to 5 p.m. on Thursdays.
