A big shout out to Larry and all of his very dedicated mail carriers and the folks who donated food during the recent Mail Carriers Food Drive.
For the 24th year in a row, letter carriers across the United States displayed concern, compassion and commitment to their postal customers—and to the communities in which they work and live—by participating in the Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive, the nation’s largest one-day food collection effort.
Food was shared between various food donation agencies in Silver City including St. Francis Associates, The St. Vincent De Paul Food Pantry and the Silver City Gospel Mission, among others.
No final tally of total food collected is available yet, but the Mission received more than 3 bins of food averaging around 2 1/2 tons that will go a long way in helping us meet our mission of feeding the hungry in Silver City.
The mail carriers were really on the ball this year and Carriers stuffed bags in mailboxes throughout the city in the days leading up to the drive that served as a reminder to donate and made it easy to do so. Picking up these grocery-store sized bags filled with canned goods in addition to their regular duties really shows how much these guys care and is much appreciated.
And our community deserves a giant hand for really going overboard this year in their donations.
Thanks guys for a job well done and for your extra effort to make this food drive the success it was!
