Why: The Salvation Army Thanksgiving Food Drive is an annual collection to help support those in need during the holiday season. Matter Communications will be collecting donations for the drive at its office, as well as marked boxes located in Tannery shops. Items collected through November 16 will be donated directly to the Salvation Army.


Suggested items: Turkey (preferably grocery store certificates to purchase a turkey, as they have limited freezer space), stuffing, sweet potatoes, yams, white potatoes, vegetables, turkey gravy, turkey broth, dinner rolls, cranberry sauce, cake mix, pie crust, pie filling, juice.

“Giving back to the greater Newburyport community is a priority here at Matter,” said Scott Signore, CEO of Matter Communications. “Last year we filled three SUVs full of food and we are hoping for another great turnout this year. It’s important to help one another especially during the holidays, so we’re glad to help make that happen this Thanksgiving season.”
