Many of you may have heard about the very large and successful drive-through food distribution for Veterans at Gillette Stadium the past two weeks. Many of you may have even participated. However, for many Veterans in the North Shore and Merrimack Valley areas, it has been out of reach. Beginning next week, Veterans will be able to benefit from the drive here closer to home!
Veterans Northeast Outreach Center in partnership with Massachusetts Military Support Foundation Food4Vets, is increasing the areas of assistance to Massachusetts Veterans experiencing limited access to food due to COVID19. They will be holding drive-through food distribution events on Wednesdays beginning next week on April 22, 2020 in Haverhill. These distributions will be held on alternate weeks at Northern Essex Community College in Haverhill, and North Shore Community College in Danvers.
Similar to the Gillette Stadium food drive, Veterans will need to pre-register. If you are a North Andover or Boxford veteran and you are unable to pick up your food order please REGISTER and then contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-688-9525 to arrange delivery assistance.
