On Saturday, a remarkable 14,000 pounds of food were collected and donated to The Green Apple Pantry via the Letter Carrier Food Drive!

Currently, 11 pallets of donations are being meticulously sorted and organized for our neighbors. A heartfelt thank you goes out to everyone who participated, and to Postmaster Andrea along with the team of mail carriers who delivered the donations one truckload at a time. We are immensely grateful!
