About Us

In FY 2017, the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center provided food and services to more than 1400 people who were homeless or residing in Stonington, Mystic, Westerly or North Stonington. Food came from our Community Garden, local gardens, individual and corporate donations and Gemma Moran. We are always in need of food, personal hygiene items, pet food, diapers/wipes and clothing. All items are distributed without charge.

More than 300 boxes of turkey meals will be distributed during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Parents will write wish lists to Santa and our community donors will fulfill those requests for hundreds of children during the week before Christmas. If your child needs a present or you want to shop for a child, please contact us.

We exist through our volunteers and donors. Many of our volunteers are persons over age 55. In addition to volunteer opportunities, our Senior Center offers classes, trips, lunches and educational speakers. Check out the Senior Center page on our website.

If you need a FREE ride to the Neighborhood Center, shopping or a medical appointment. Call us. We offer transportation through our PNC vans.

It's getting cold and people are coming to us for heating and rental assistance. If you are warm, sheltered and full, count your blessings! Then, consider making a small (or large) donation to the PNC. We will share your gift with your neighbors!
