A Place To Turn
Natick, MA 01760
Details: A Place To Turn was established in 1979. The founders were among the first to recognize that economic hardship exists in the suburbs and is not exclusively an urban problem. The food pantry began as a fledgling entity in the basement of a private home, moved briefly to St. Patrick Church in Natick, and in 1981 settled at its present location in a small cape on the grounds of the Hartford Street Presbyterian Church in Natick. A Place To Turn is open for client visits and donations during the following hours: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday: 9:30 am to 12:30 pm, Wednesday: 11:00 am to 12:30 pm, 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm
