Postal carriers around the Southern Tier collected more than just mail Saturday, they also collected food donations.
Thousands of pounds of non-perishable foods were collected for the National Association of Letter Carriers “Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.”
Organizers said more than 96,000 pounds of food was collected last year. Some of the food collected in the Southern Tier will go to the Broome County Council of Churches, or CHOW.
This is something local U.S Postal Workers said they enjoy doing and also enjoy seeing the community participate in.
“Most people put out a whole bag of stuff, but honestly we will take anything we can get,” mail carrier Jonny Farnham said. “It’s meaningful, there is people who need help and if we can help, anything we can do to help.”
This was the 24th annual Letter Carriers “Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.”
