Revere Food Pantry Postal Food Drive
The First Congregational Church of Revere Food Pantry has been serving the needy of Revere, Chelsea, East Boston, and other surrounding communities since 1983. We are an emergency food pantry and distribute groceries to 300 to 500 families per month. We buy groceries at reduced cost from the Greater Food Bank and rely heavily on food drives that several organizations run for us during the year. This year is the 25th Anniversary of the National Association of Letter Carriers Food Drive, held on Saturday, May 13. Letter carriers pick up donated non-perishable food from customers along their route and deliver the food directly to our food pantry. Many families in our own community are finding it difficult to put food on the table and are turning to local food pantries such as ours. Food donations can also be dropped off directly at the church. Your donations to the Postal Food Drive will have positive impact on the fight against hunger here in Revere and our surrounding communities.

Revere Public Schools to host Career Fair
The Revere Public Schools will host a Career Fair for perspective applicants on Thursday, May 4, from 5 to 7 p.m., at the Rumney Marsh Academy.
Fair organizers hope to attract qualified candidates from a variety of backgrounds to work in the Revere schools.
“We are an innovative, urban district that seeks to provide the children of Revere with the highest quality education available,” said Dr. Dianne Kelly, superintendent of the Revere Public Schools. “We pride ourselves on hiring only the most qualified and skilled teachers to achieve that goal, which requires searching on a larger-than-typical scale. We hope the job fair will give prospective employees a better understanding of the dynamic, motivated, forward-thinking team they might be joining.
“The format of the fair will better enable both the school department and the candidate to determine whether or not our collaboration would be best for our kids,” Dr. Kelly added. “And that is really our only concern – what (and who!) is best for our kids?”
The recruitment fair will be held at the Rumney Marsh Academy, 140 American Legion Highway, Revere. Representatives from the schools will be present to help direct job seekers and answer questions.
At the Career Fair, visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the city’s elementary, middle, and high schools. In addition to general education, the Special Education and English Language Learners departments will be represented as well.
“This is a tremendous opportunity to find out about teaching positions in an innovative and exciting district that supports new teachers and encourages creativity and growth,” said Nancy Barile, a National Board Certified teacher who helped organize the fair.
The Revere schools anticipate vacancies in a variety of positions across the district. Among the benefits of teaching in Revere are a targeted mentoring program, in-district professional development, outstanding benefits, competitive salaries, and convenient access to public transportation.
The Revere school district, just north of Boston, serves more than 7,000 students in 11 schools: six elementary schools, three middle schools, a high school, and an alternative middle/high school.
