On Saturday May 11, Yankton City and Rural letter carriers and volunteers picked up just over 8,175 pounds of nonperishable food and other items in the 27th National Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. Everything collected was donated to the local food pantry.

We would like to thank all the people who donated and everyone who collected and sorted the nonperishable items. We want to thank Hy-Vee for sponsoring the plastic bags with the food drive logo.

Also a big thanks to the local media for printing and airing our public service announcements, Larry’s Heating and Cooling/Slumberland and Mayer signs for putting it on their electronic signs and all of the places that allowed us to put up the posters.

Thank you all for filling up the shelves at our local food pantry.
