Local Post Office Raises Over 2,300 lbs. Of Food In Stamp Out Hunger Drive

The 2016 Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive, held on Saturday, May 14, was a huge success again, according to local letter carrier Justin Herndon.

“Residents were asked to leave a bag or box of non-perishable food by their mailbox, and we delivered it to the Crothersville Food Pantry,” said Herndon. “This year 2,301 lbs of food was collected. I am very excited about the community involvement with this event. Residents were eager to donate food and some also offered to donate their time to help make the event successful.”

New to the event this year, the Crothersville Community Schools had a contest to see which class could bring in the most donations. The 6th grade class brought in the most food and was awarded with a pizza party.
