To the editor:

Thank you so much for helping us let people know about the Lincoln Postal Food Drive.

This year, the postal food drive collected and gave to our local food pantries (Lincoln Logan, Salvation Army, Holu Family, and Jefferson Street Christian Churches Food Pantries)  11,153 pounds of food.

Mount Pulaski residents gave 763 pounds of food and Lincoln residents gave 10.390 pounds of food.

We are very grateful for everybody's generosity.

We want to thank IGA for donating grocery bags, Lincoln Printers for quickly and efficiently printing thousands of information cards and Stuffed Aria for putting our information cards on their pizzas and for giving us a good price on pizza so we could feed our volunteers.

Finally, we want to thank every person who donated to the food drive.  Each donor has helped the food pantries and the people they serve.

Thank-you all.

Cathy Jones
Coordinator Lincoln Postal Food Drive
