To the editor: Good Neighbors thanks all who gave during food drive

The staff, volunteers and clients of the Black River Good Neighbor Services’ food shelf extend their thanks to all who participated in the U.S. Post Office’s 2013 Stamp Out Hunger National Food Drive – the largest one-day food drive in the nation and probably in the world.

Mail carriers for each of the towns and villages that BRGNS serves, Ludlow, Cavendish, Proctorsville, Mount Holly and Plymouth, collected food along their routes on May 11th and donated that food to BRGNS.  Those donations helped to fill shelves and will help to feed the hungry for several weeks.

Unfortunately, we have a continuing need in the Black River Valley for the services of a food shelf, but with the generosity of citizens and the help of groups like the U.S. Postal Service we can continue successful fulfillment of our mission. Equally important is the donation of time by all of the wonderful volunteers who helped collect, sort and shelve the food items.  Anyone can help. Just come to our thrift store at 37B Main St., and we’ll find something for you to do.
