LaMattina: Grace Federated Food Pantry needs donations!

Eastboston.com received this letter from District 1 City Councilor Sal LaMattina this evening.
Dear Friends:

The cupboard is almost bare.

East Boston’s Grace Federated Church food pantry supports local families who otherwise would not get enough to eat, but the current economic slowdown is straining the program’s resources. If you are able, please contribute canned goods and other non-perishables by dropping them off at East Boston Main Streets, located at 146 Maverick Street, or at one of the following East Boston Savings Bank locations:

- Maverick Square branch, 10 Meridian Street

- Central Square branch, One Bennington Street

- Orient Heights branch, 856 Bennington Street

- Northshore Mall branch, 67 Prospect Street, Peabody

Let’s do our best to make sure none of our neighbors go to bed hungry during this holiday season.


Salvatore LaMattina

District 1 City Councilor

TIs the season for giving. Let's all step up to the plate
