Letter: Stamping out hunger

To the Editor:

The National Association of Letter Carriers held its annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on May 10.

The Geneva letter carriers collected 4,417 pounds of food that were donated to the St. Peter Community Food Pantry in Geneva. We want to thank every one of these carriers for their time and effort.

Our Geneva neighbors also deserve kudos for their generous donations, as well as the volunteers who spent their Saturday afternoon sorting and storing the donations for our next distribution.

In April, our food pantry served 427 households, totaling 1,564 people, so there continues to be a need for our services. Our sincere gratitude to everyone who helped to make this annual event so successful.
