The recent postal carrier’s food drive, Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive, on behalf of Black River Good Neighbor Services Food Shelf was an absolute success this year. So much food was donated in just one day, and for that we are extremely grateful.
Letter carriers in Ludlow, Mount Holly, Belmont, Proctorsville, Cavendish, and Plymouth went above and beyond May 12 as they collected bags of food along with their regular mail deliveries. In the postal world, this day is the “National Day of Giving” and we are extremely proud of this supportive effort on behalf of those in need in our community.
For Black River Good Neighbor Services, this collection really does help in keeping our shelves stocked with essentials. For folks who need the food shelf, it helps to create an atmosphere of “needing to use the food shelf is not the end of the world.” We find that when the shelves are stocked, people don’t feel quite as desperate as they might coming in. And we work hard to share compassion together with food assistance.
To the postal carriers and everyone in our community who donated food, thank you very much!
