Annual Postal Drive is Extremely Successful!

The annual postal drive around the country happened on May 9th. The local postal workers worked hard to help the local food pantries and non-profits by picking up food at their stops. Once again, they brought in a lot of great non-perishables. The Franklin Area Survival Center received 2,622 pounds of food from the Greenfield Post Office. The Turners Falls/Montague Post Offices are still bringing in donations, but as of today, we have received 3, 352 pounds! We are so thankful to the workers and the residents for helping us each year. We look forward to this drive every year, and each year they do not let us down. Thanks so much everyone for your help! We are sure our clients thank you, too!
