Henry Shaughnessy Memorial Holiday Food Drive

Woburn Letter Carriers

Saturday, November 1

On Saturday, November 1, the Letter Carriers of the Woburn Post Office will conduct their annual holiday food drive to benefit Council of Social Concern’s Food Pantry. They do this in memory of Henry Shaughnessy, who wore the uniform of the Woburn Letter Carriers and spread compassion, generosity and good will along his route for 50 years.

Are you an everyday superhero? Looking for ways to help? Or an opportunity to volunteer? While you may not be able to fly or have super strength, there are ways you can be a hero this season.

The Council of Social Concern is starting their 29th Annual Holiday Food Project and needs help to ensure the comfort and food security of those in Woburn and Winchester who seek its services. As the weather grow colder and the days shorter, the need is greater, and many are looking to help. 

Be the hero of your neighborhood.

What's your handicap looking like this summer?
