Letter Carriers Renew Their Fight Against Hunger

Posted

The Seekonk Letter Carriers conducted their long-standing springtime food drive again this year; food collected will benefit local residents, as all the donations went to the Doorways food pantry. The drive raised between 2,500 and 3,000 pounds of food, thanks to the generosity of the people of Seekonk and the willingness of the letter carriers to undertake the extra work involved in collecting the donations.

The National Association of Letter Carriers has been conducting the food drive as a nationwide initiative since 1993, and the Seekonk Letter Carriers have been collecting for Doorways since the pantry opened in 2001. Over 70 local families rely on Doorways on a regular basis, and Doorways in turn relies on people like the letter carriers and their postal patrons. We thank the community and especially the Letter Carriers for taking the time to help us in our mission.
