Corrigan started with a small pantry on the curb outside the house and before he knew it, the donations were flooding in.

When Barney Corrigan moved to his new house in Westville in March, he assumed he’d be packing his garage with tools, bikes and other odds-and-ends that wouldn’t fit in the house. But that will have to wait. For the time being, his garage has turned into a massive make-shift grocery pantry.

When the pandemic hit before his family was even fully unpacked, Corrigan found himself in a new house with a lot of time on his hands. Looking for a way to get involved in his new neighborhood, he built a small pantry on the curb outside the house. Before he knew it, the donations were flooding in – so much the pantry was moved to the garage. Every other Sunday from 8 am to 1 pm, the garage is open to anyone seeking food, cleaning supplies and toiletries.

“I’m just trying to do my part in spreading a little love and compassion,” Corrigan says.
