Wautoma area postal carriers collect 2,000 pounds of food

To the Editor:

 

We did it again. Letter carriers at the Wautoma Post Office along with postal employees and local volunteers teamed up to stamp out hunger in the community.

So many made this year’s Food Drive a success, and it could not have been done without you.

Across the country, the Food Drive—held in cooperation with the Postal Service—resulted in millions of pounds of non-perishable food collected and distributed to deserving charities nation-wide.

Closer to home, the Wautoma carriers collected over 2,000 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.
