This holiday season, the staff at Old Colony Elder Services (OCES), the Brockton based regional elder services agency serving seniors, their families and caregivers throughout greater Brockton and Plymouth county, has gone above and beyond to help those in need. The agency collected several large boxes of canned food donations from their staff during their Holiday Party held last week.
The canned food drive donations were delivered to The Charity Guild food pantry and thrift shop located on Main Street in Brockton.
