Letter Carriers’ Food Drive Was a Very Big Success

Letter Carrier Food Drive 2015The 2015 Letter Carriers’ Food Drive held last Saturday has been reported to have far exceeded last year’s results. 

According to Ferndale Food Bank Executive Director Suzanne Nevan, “This year’s collection was wonderful.” Nevan pointed out that last year’s collection brought in a respectable 5,300 pounds of donations while this year’s was 30% more at just over 7,000 pounds.

The reality in Ferndale is about 20% of our neighbors are served by the Ferndale Food Bank and these donations will be used to help handle that heavy demand.

In addition to the letter carriers servicing their routes Saturday, other postal workers stepped up to help with the collection effort so mail delivery was able to proceed on time.
