Donations sought for holiday food drive

Matter Communications is seeking donations for the Salvation Army Thanksgiving Food Drive, an annual collection to help support those in need during the holiday season. The company will collect items through Nov. 16 at its office in Mill #3 at the Tannery, 50 Water St., and in marked bins at shops throughout the Tannery. Suggested items include grocery store certificates to purchase turkeys (this is in lieu of frozen turkeys due to limited freezer space), stuffing, sweet potatoes, yams, white potatoes, vegetables, turkey gravy, turkey broth, dinner rolls, cranberry sauce, cake mix, pie crust, pie filling, and juice. “Giving back to the Greater Newburyport community is a priority here at Matter,” said Scott Signore, chief executive officer of the company. “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.”
