To the editor,
On Saturday, May 10, the National Association of Letter Carriers held their annual nationwide “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive.
Letter carriers at the Delphos Post Office participated as well and we are happy to announce that this years drive brought in a total of 2,490 pounds of non-perishable food!
All the food was evenly distributed between the St. Vincent DePaul Society and the Interfaith Thrift Shop, both located here in Delphos. This will really help stock their shelves as the summer approaches.
A task such as this could not be accomplished without the help of others so at this time we would like to thank WDOH and The Delphos Herald for their advertising, the businesses that helped us promote this food drive, our local management; Marilyn Mulholland and Lori Brenner for their cooperation, the rural carriers who worked that day; Lisa Rahrig, Donna Moreo, Louise Laudick and Kim Feathers, for collecting on their routes, our clerks working that day; Lisa Perry and Julia Kleman for taking care of the food collected in the lobby and over the counter; and special thanks to Janet Taff for coming in on her vacation and separating the cans and the boxed donations.
Special thanks also to our Postmaster Marilyn Mulholland and clerk Lorna Springer who came in on their day off and retired letter carrier Jeff Metcalfe for driving around collecting food donations from us while we were on our routes and taking it to the post office to get weighed and ready for distribution.
Most importantly we would like to thank all our customers who donated food because without your help, this food drive would not have been the success it was.
So many of our friends and neighbors who are in need have benefited from your generosity and you helped put a smile on their face.
Thanks again from all of us.
