On Saturday, May 8, the National Association of Letter Carriers and local rural carriers collected a record amount of food donations. A total of 9,200 pounds of non-perishable food was collected and delivered to the Friends of the Community Food Bank on Stanford Avenue.
I would like to thank my fellow city and rural carriers for donating their time and doing a great job of collecting the food. This year, we had people donate pizzas and drinks for the carriers and the people from the food bank. I would like to thank Vend Fresh, Papa John's Pizza, and Little Caesar's Pizza for all of their help.
Most of all, I would like to thank everyone who donated from their heart with food. Without your help, we could not help those in our community who need it most. Thank you!
