Letter to the Editor

Please Donate to the First Congregational Food Bank

Dear Editor:

The Food Bank at the Congregational Church (at this time of year) usually distributes food to 60 – 75 families.

Last week 321 families came and 296 were first-timers.

The staff gave out 526 larger bags, and 321 smaller bags of USDA supplies.

The line of cars went all the back to Revere High.

Never in the 45-year history of the Food Pantry have they run out of food.

But last week they did. They had nothing left.

The Greater Boston Food Bank will supply 6,000 lbs. for this week.

But that won’t be enough.

With money donations, they can meet the greater need.

Can you help?

The Beachmont Improvement Committee has donated $1,000.

The City Council and the School Committee have been challenged to donate at least $100.

Of course any amount will be welcome.

But some may be fortunate enough to be able to contribute more.

These are our neighbors. These are our children.

Let us be as generous as our circumstances will allow.

If you can give, please send a check to The First Congregational Church (in memo line, write Food Bank) at 94 Central Avenue, Revere.

Carol A. Tye,

School Committee
