State Committeewoman Linda Rapoza

Thanks Volunteers in the Herald News:

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the good citizens of Fall River for their spectacular generosity to the Veterans’ Pantry Food Drive held on June 21 at Shaw’s Supermarket in the North End of Fall River.
Volunteers from the Fall River Republican City Committee collected almost 3,000 pounds of non-perishable food with an estimated value of more than $3,000, along with cash donations amounting to $182.
Fall River is a poor community and its citizens are suffering with skyrocketing food and energy costs. Yet the spirit of giving was astounding. With donations ranging from one item to a whole shopping cart full, people gave what they could, and every single can and coin was deeply appreciated. A special thanks goes out to Shaw’s Supermarket for letting it happen.
Let there be no doubt, the good citizens of Fall River — young and old — honor, love and respect their veterans, and their kindness knows no bounds. God bless them all.
