Postal food drive: a huge success

BRATTLEBORO — The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive was a huge success this year in Brattleboro, Guilford, Vernon, Dummerston, Putney, and beyond. Postal customers donated over 8,000 pounds of food in our region, a 70-percent increase over last year!

Members of the National Association of Letter Carriers hold this national drive each year on the second Saturday in May, and the collected non-perishables stay local to each participating community across the United States.

Our sharp increase in donations was in no small part due to the support of this year's sponsors. I share my appreciation to them, to the letter carriers and rural carriers who worked double-duty to help our neighbors in need, to our volunteers, and to each person who left a little something or a lot of something by your mailbox.

It all added up to a big impact. Thank you!
