To the Editor:
The postman’s creed is familiar to many, “Neither rain nor snow nor sleet…”
That creed was put to test this past Saturday, May 9, when the 17th Annual Postal Worker’s Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive was scheduled on yet another rainy, storming day. The City Letter Carriers and Rural Letter Carriers of our community forged through the storms, collecting full and rain-soaked bags of food generously left in, around and under mailboxes, donated by their postal clients for the Community Help Center of Wilson County.
Thanks to the hard work and generosity of so many people, this year’s Postal food drive added more than 13,000 pounds of food for the needs of our community.
We would like to thank Sheriff Terry Ashe for providing the guards and inmates with unending energy to sort and unload the donations, the letter carriers, rural carriers and postal staff who provided the literature, the bags and their giving spirit to the food drive and to the citizens of Wilson County who as always, live up to the “Volunteer State” nickname. Your kindness and generosity will feed many in this challenging economic time and affirm the caring spirit of the people of Wilson County.
The Board of Directors of the Community Help CenterLebanon
