Thank You For A Successful Food Drive

AVILLA – We did it again! Letter carriers at the Avilla Post Office, along with postal employees and local volunteers teamed up to stamp out hunger in the community.

I want to thank everyone who helped make this year’s Food Drive a success. It could not have been done without you.

Across the country, the Food Drive – held in cooperation with the Postal Service – resulted in millions of pounds of non-perishable food collected and distributed to deserving charities

Closer to home, the Avilla carriers collected 840 pounds of food from generous donations left at mailboxes, which were then delivered to local community food pantries.

For 25 years our local community has come together for this important event to help make it successful. This clearly shows the generosity of everyone involved with this project – people who make a difference in other people’s lives.
