I’m feeling much gratitude today for the Northampton Survival Center and our community for a successful Post Office Food Drive. The event felt like a big party with great music, delicious snack donations from local restaurants, well organized guidance from dedicated staff members, and food contributions collected by our hard working letter carriers. It was such fun to participate with the many smiling volunteers, to see old friends and create new friendships. I appreciate the Survival Center that has shared our collective abundance with our friends and neighbors with dignity and respect since 1979.
