Postal carriers collect 7,000 pounds of food

HELP AGENCY VOLUNTEERS, l-r: Joe Johnson, Denmark Garcia and Nancy Kemp sort through the donated foodstuffs.

Grady County residents stepped up to the challenge Saturday to help “Stamp Out Hunger” and local postal carriers collected approximately 7,000 pounds of donated food that was placed in or beside mailboxes throughout the county.
Help Agency volunteer Cindy Johnson reports that this year’s collections are about 300 pounds more than what was donated last year during the annual food drive.
“We are so thankful for the community’s participation and to the local letter carriers who had the added task of collecting and delivering the food to Help Agency volunteers,” Mrs. Johnson said.
All of the food donated will benefit local residents through the Help Agency’s food bank.
“We really could not do this each year without the help and support of everyone with the Post Office,” Mrs. Johnson added.
“Stamp Out Hunger” began 21 years ago and has resulted in over a billion pounds of food collected for food banks across the nation.
