Annual food drive a success

The Committee’s annual drive for non-perishable goods was a great success! Held before the first night of Boxford’s spring town meeting last week, on Tuesday, May 10, donations poured in as Boxford residents came to the meeting.  A table was set up outside the main-office entrance to the school, where most town meeting attendees enter; marked donation boxes were also posted at other entrances to the school .  Food contributions from the drive benefit two local food pantries — one at the First Congregational Church in Boxford, and a second, the People’s Pantry, located at the North Parish of the North Andover Unitarian Universalist Church.  Residents who forgot their food contribution could also drop them off at the East Boxford fire station, through Thursday.

Many thanks to our industrious and well-organized subcommittee for this event:  Jessica Grigg, Terri Teleen, and two new committee members, Deborah and Ira Schildkraut, with some signage assistance from Vice-chair Ken Thompson.
