National Letter Carriers Food Drive a Success

Volunteers sort food on the dock of the Albany Post Office under the supervision of Ryan McCambridge, Linn Benton Food Share Coordinator, on the day of the carriers food drive.

In another successful nationwide food drive, the National Association of Letter Carriers collected 70.2 million pounds of food on May 14, at a time when hunger is a growing problem.

In Linn and Benton counties, the Letter Carriers Food food drive was under last years results by -19.83 percent.

These are the local community results.

Corvallis: 28,053 pounds of food
Albany: 25,418
Lebanon: 9,635
Total: 63,106

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the food drive. The food from the food drive stays in Linn and Benton counties.
