Family Center thanks all involved with Postal Carriers Food Drive

Dear Editor,

The Board and staff of the Springfield Family Center would like to thank all who donated food during the annual Postal Carriers Food Drive in Springfield on May 13.

We received a total of 7,312 items of food, totaling a value of $16,464.86. We are grateful for each and every person who remembered to donate.

We would like to thank our postmaster and all the carriers for collecting the food and delivering it to the Family Center.

We would also like to thank the Rotary Club of Springfield for helping to bring in and sort all of the donated food and for providing the bags.

As always, we are very proud of the Springfield Family Center volunteers who stepped up to help. These dedicated volunteers gave a collective total of 35 hours of their time that day. Board members, volunteers, staff, and neighbors who use our services all worked side by side to organize the food as it came in.

Our garden is ready to be tilled right onsite. Our goal is to help our neighbors be as healthy as they can be physically, mentally, spiritually, and financially.

Please consider holding a food drive to help us catch up our food supply and build up our new healthy section so that we can meet the needs of our neighbors who have special diets as well as our general population.

You can reach us at 802-885-3646 to schedule a food drive or make a donation. Thank you for helping us help others eat healthy!


Mike Wiese
