About 4,300 pounds of food were collected during the National Association of Letter Carriers’ Food Drive last Saturday in Mount Vernon. All food items will remain in the Mount Vernon area for distribution, and the items collected in this food drive will make a big difference here in Mount Vernon for the next few months.
Postal employees wish to thank the rural and city letter carriers and the volunteers from the United Way of Posey County that helped collect the food, the volunteers at the food pantry, and the community for their generous donations.
There was a food drive in New Harmony this year also. Food items could be put in a box at the post office and were collected each day by United Way of Posey County volunteers.
Items remain in the New Harmony area for distribution. According to volunteers, 116 pounds of food were collected.
