Thanks for supporting Newburyport organizations

To the editor:

On behalf of Newburyport Youth Services, the Newburyport Learning Enrichment Center and the Newburyport Farmers’ Market, we would like to recognize the citizens of Newburyport for their kind monetary and non-perishable food donations for families in need this past holiday season. We raised enough money and received very generous food donations that allowed over 40 families in Newburyport to have a traditional Thanksgiving and Christmas meal.

Whether folks contributed change in the youth designed handcrafted containers throughout the stores in downtown Newburyport, dropped off non-perishable food to the Kelley School Youth Center or bought a reusable bag at the Farmer’s Market, every little bit helped. Loose change added up to $1 very quickly, and $1 turned into one turkey even faster!

We are energized and proud to be a part of such a generous community, and look forward to providing a helping hand in 2013.

Margot Petler
