Carriers collect tons of food

On Saturday, May 13, the postal employees and community volunteers collected food items as part of the nation wide drive to stamp out hunger. In the North Whidbey/Oak Harbor area over 8,000 pounds of food and monetary donations were collected and donated to the North Whidbey Help House.

On behalf of the National Association of Letter Carriers and the US Postal Service, a big thank you to all the wonderful volunteers from VP-46, VQ-2, Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Detachment (AIMD), the NAS Dining Facility (Galley), CNATTU, the Oak Harbor High School and Coupeville High School students, the Help House and post office employees and their family members, who gave their Saturday to help their community. And a special thank you to our wonderful community, you gave so generously and made this food drive so successful. Thank you, thank you.

I also wish to thank the Whidbey News-Times for the front-page article about the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. Your coverage of this event demonstrates your commitment to our community and was instrumental in the food drive’s success.
