The Henry Shaughnessy Memorial Food Drive will take place on Saturday, October 31, 2015. All donations will help stock the shelves at the Council of Social Concern’s Food Pantry. In the past, Letter Carriers have collected and delivered thousands of pounds of food to the Food Pantry.

We may not realize it, but every day we see people who need food assistance in order to adequately feed themselves and their families. They are in our schools, our churches, our workplaces, our neighborhoods and our community. Hundreds of our neighbors in Woburn rely on the Council of Social Concern’s Food Pantry when their circumstances leave them with nowhere else to turn. We are counting on your generosity once again to help keep our shelves stocked through the winter months. Hunger is a problem we can all do something about, so please join with your Woburn Letter Carriers to make the Henry Shaughnessy Memorial Food Drive an extremely successful event!

Remind your friends and family to vote; turnout in local elections drops every year, yet in many ways those elected to serve in local offices have the greatest impact on our daily lives.
