Letter: Thanks for food drive support

On behalf of the Salisbury city letter carriers, I thank everyone who helped make our 25th annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive a success.

We collected 27,312 pounds, which went to local food pantries: Salvation Army, China Grove Main Street Mission and Rowan Helping Ministries.

The generosity of our customers is amazing.

Thanks to the rural/city carriers, clerks, maintenance crew and supervisors who worked so hard to make the drive a success.

Thanks to Jackie Harris and the United Way, Dennis Sims, the R.O.T.C. and the many food pantry volunteers, Food Lion for the bags, trailer and store No. 416 for bag recycling, reporter Shavonne Potts and the Salisbury Post. Marlowe’s Barbecue, the churches and local groups who gave space on signs and bulletins, and local TV and radio stations who promoted the food drive.

You are all awesome — thank you!

— Kim Lane
