Once again, the Council of Social Concern is participating in the annual Letter Carrier Food Drive to help keep the shelves stocked at the Pantry. Your genorisity on Saturday, November 3 can truly make a difference for the numerous families in our community who are in need every day. 

Letter from Karen Colatrella:

Since the recession began, Council of Social Concern’s Food Pantry has seen a dramatic increase in the number of households we are serving, and the situation shows no signs of improving.  As a result, we are going through food at an alarming rate, and keeping our shelves stocked for our “neighbors in need” is a real challenge.

Once again, the Letter Carriers of the Woburn Post Office are coming to the rescue.  Although they have suffered their own cutbacks and are facing an uncertain future, these dedicated men and women are still conducting their annual Henry Shaughnessy Memorial Holiday Food Drive to benefit our Food Pantry.  Henry wore the uniform of a U. S. Postal worker for 50 years and was an inspiration to his fellow Letter Carriers in the way he performed his job with pride, commitment and compassion for the residents on his route. 

I cannot overemphasize the importance of the Postal Food Drives to our community – the National one held in the spring and this additional one that Woburn conducts in the fall.  These food drives make it possible for us to keep our shelves stocked for the local children, elderly, disabled, physically and mentally impaired, unemployed, underemployed and despairing that rely on us being here to help.

If you would like to contribute to this cause, please come to the yard sale and purchase some items. You can also help by donating items to sell at the yard sale. RE/MAX Legacy will send someone to pick up the items from your residence if you are unable to drop them off. Donations of food to the pantry would also be appreciated, especially baked beans, soup, instant mashed potatoes, juice and dessert mixes.
