Food drive

On behalf of the Marysville Community Food Bank, I want to express out deep appreciation to all the Postal Workers who participated in the Letter Carriers Food Drive on May 12, 2007. We also extend a special thanks to Rocky, the Post Office coordinator for the drive. The extra time and effort resulted in a collection of 35, 196 pounds 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. Nearly 55 volunteers transported the food from the main office and the annex at 146th Street to the Food Bank, where it was sorted and is being prepared for distribution. This is a critical food drive that allows us to maintain a consisted supply of food, particularly during the summer months when children do not have access to school lunches.
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. And in the current economic climate, their numbers are growing dramatically.
Mike Mulligan, President, Board of Directors
