Since 2008, the South Shore Oktoberfest has raised over $60,000 for South Shore charities, providing 500,000 meals to families in need. Each year, we have grown – with local fraternal groups joining the cause – because the call to help those in need has never been greater and many of our neighbors are struggling with poverty and going hungry.
Interfaith Social Services Food Pantry is one of the recipients of the event profits. A non-profit, non-sectarian agency that provides support to Quincy, Milton, Holbrook, Randolph, Braintree, Weymouth, Hingham, Hull, Cohasset and Scituate, their food pantry, which opened in 1975, distributes over $400,000 of groceries annually to more than 15,000 duplicated individuals – more than 40 households a day.
We could not do this event without the support of the community. If you are or know of a business that might be willing to support the event, please contact us. From raffle/auction prizes of goods or services, to monetary support, advertising, or materials, the South Shore Oktoberfest needs your help.
