Letter carriers will hold drive to gather food

by Rosemarie Middendorf

We hope you plan to prepare a donation to the sixth annual food drive planned for Saturday 13, by the National Association of Letter Carriers.

You still have time to gather a bag or box full of non-perishable items. Select any non-perishable items, such as those your family enjoys, and place them in a container; no glass, please.

Place the container next to your mail box before the carrier arrives. The mail carrier will take the food items to the post office and, from there, deliver donations to the Carson Valley Community Food Closet. People may also take donations to their post office.

The food closet, a non-profit organization manned solely by volunteers, attempts to provide food year-round to those who qualify through Douglas County Social Services.
