“Giving back to the greater Newburyport community is a priority to all of us here at Matter,” said Scott Signore, CEO of Matter Communications. “We’re working with the Salvation Army to expand the scope of the food drive to the Tannery and its visitors, and we’re hoping for an enthusiastic response from local businesses and residents alike. It’s most important for help one another in times like these, and we’re glad to help make that happen this Thanksgiving season.”
