Marysville Food Bank

Foodbank thank you

On behalf of the Marysville Community Food Bank, I want to express our deep appreciation to all the Postal Workers who participated in the Letter Carriers Food Drive on May 10. We extend a special thanks to Rocky and Abe at the Marysville Post Office and Annex. The extra time and effort resulted in a collection of over 21 tons of food, all of which will remain in Marysville and will be distributed to the hungry in our service area.

We also want to thank all the residents in the Marysville Postal service area who gave so generously to this food drive and who made it such a huge success. Over 70 volunteers transferred donations from the main office and the annex at 136th Street to the Food Bank and sorted the food. This is a critical food drive that allows us to maintain a consistent supply of food, particularly during the summer months.

Again, our deepest thanks to all those who took part in this Food Drive letter carriers, other Post Office personnel, contributors volunteers and staff. All your efforts enable us to carry out our mission of feeding the hungry in our community, especially in this tie of higher food and transportation costs.

Mike Mulligan, President
