Letter: Thank you, Peabody


The Salem News

---- — To the editor:

I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to the multiple individuals, families and organizations from the city of Peabody who donated to our Carroll School community over the past few months. As a new principal to the district, I was overwhelmed at the outpouring of support we received at Thomas Carroll Elementary School when two of our families were displaced by house fires.

Again, I want to thank every person who donated clothes, gift cards, furniture, as well as their time to organize and get things delivered to our very special Carroll School families.

Moving forward into the New Year, it’s reassuring to know that Peabody continues to have such a strong sense of community to which I am proud to reside with my young family and be a special part of.
