Letter Carriers Food Drive brings in 10K+ pounds of food

The Emergency Food Box and Salvation Army would like to thank everyone who generously donated to the successful Letter Carriers Food Drive that was held Saturday. Marshalltown’s response to this year’s drive was excellent — with a final total of 10,123 pounds. We are truly grateful for this response.

We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the Marshalltown city and rural letter carriers for their extra work in collecting and handling those donated food items; our special thanks to Sandy McRill, Food Drive Chairman, for coordinating the Marshalltown Letter Carriers Food Drive. This is the 27th annual NALC’s Stamp Out Hunger national food drive, the largest one-day food drive in the nation. Thank you to everyone whose hard work made this drive extremely successful.

It is due to each of you in our community, your generous demonstration of care and concern, that the emergency hunger needs of persons in Marshall County continue to be met. We are truly gratified by all your support and help. Many thanks.

This letter was written on behalf of Dianne Maile, Edith Podhajsky and John Eich at the Emergency Food Box and Derice Aargon with the Salvation Army.
