Food Pantry volunteers thank postal workers, community

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the families that we serve, we would like to thank the community for their donations to the Postal Food Drive, which took place on May 9th. The donations of cereal, juice, juice boxes, soup, canned fruits and other items helped to fill the shelves at the pantry. This drive would not have been possible without the support of the Northborough Postmaster, Postal Carrier Bob Wendorf, who coordinated the drive, and the whole Postal staff who spread the word about the drive and collected food as they delivered the mail. We would also like to express our gratitude to the many volunteers who ranged from first-graders to adults who helped to sort and stock food collected as part of this drive. This was another great example of the Northborough Community coming together to help their neighbors.

Food donations are accepted year-round and may be left at the Food Pantry located on the bottom floor of the Northborough Town Hall. Monetary donations may be mailed to the attention of the Northborough Food Pantry at 63 Main Street in Northborough. More information about the Northborough Food Pantry can be located at www.nfpantry.org.

The Northborough Food Pantry is staff ed and run solely by volunteers allowing 100% of all donations to be used to purchase food and related items for the pantry. The clients and volunteers of the Northborough Food Pantry extend a heartfelt thanks to you for your support. Gratefully, Northborough Food Pantry Board Members Susan Seppa Margie Femia Terry Crean Sarah Rothery
