Last week, City Councilor Anthony DiPierro paid an early morning visit to Chelsea, where the Everett letter carriers meet to sort their mail prior to heading out to their routes. DiPierro showed up with 40 prepared breakfast bags to thank them for their essential work throughout this pandemic.
DiPierro said the idea came about one day while talking with Council President Rosa DiFlorio as they brainstormed some different ways to thank essential workers around the city.
“Many local leaders and businesses have stepped up in tremendous ways by feeding and thanking frontline workers such as Police, Fire and Healthcare Professionals across the city,” he said. “I realized that our letter carriers have still been out each and every day and I wanted to simply say thank you.”
The Square Deli of Everett prepared 40 bags, each stocked with a breakfast sandwich, a fresh fruit cup, a chilled coffee and a juice.
Everett resident, and Post Office employee, Steven O’Connor helped DiPierro coordinate the effort.
“On behalf of the Everett letter carriers, I want to thank Councilor DiPierro for stopping by and recognizing us” O’Connor said. “It truly meant a lot to the men and women I work with and we are all grateful for his generosity and support.”
