Letter: Stamp Out Food Drive enjoys another successful year
Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive friends,
On behalf of NALC Branch 888, I would like to sincerely thank you for your donations of food and help in making the annual 2017 Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive another successful event this year. A lot of people stepped up and helped in a lot of ways to make this major event a tremendous success. There is an enormous amount of work and preparations that must take place in order to get this annual Food Drive accomplished in each of our cities. I am sure they are all very much appreciative of our efforts at our local food pantries and churches. The generosity of our local communities is amazing to say the least. This annual food drive replenishes local food pantries in our communities and we should all take pride in helping the less fortunate in our communities we serve.
The following is the amount of food in pounds that was collected and who all the food was donated to: Carmel, 22,836 pounds to Open Doors Food Pantry, Fishers, 17,347 pounds to Delaware Township Trustee & Hamilton County Harvest Food Bank, Noblesville, 14,970 pounds to Hamilton County Harvest Food Bank, Zionsville, 7,127 pounds to Zionsville Presbyterian Church, Westfield, 6,118 pounds to Open Doors Food Pantry. This was the 25th year of the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive which is the nation’s largest one day food drive. The amount of good all the donated food will do in our local communities and is measured by the number of people that will be helped greatly over the next several months. Job well done and thank you very much for your generosity!
Branch 888 President
