Community very generous in supporting local food drive PDF Print E-mail

Letter to the Editor:

We did it again! Letter carriers at the Eagle River Post Office, along with postal employees and local volunteers, teamed up to Stamp Out Hunger in the community.

I want to recognize everyone who helped make this year’s food drive a success. It could not have been done without you.

Across the country, the food drive —?held in cooperation with the U.S. Postal Service — resulted in millions of pounds of nonperishable food collected and distributed to deserving charities nationwide.

Closer to home, the Eagle River carriers and volunteers collected 4,439 pounds of food from generous donations left at mailboxes, which were then delivered to local community food pantries.

For more than 20 years, our local community has come together for this important event to help make it successful. This clearly shows the generosity of everyone involved with the project — people who make a difference in other people’s lives.
