Letter: Carriers, community deliver big for Red Wing Area Food Shelf
To the editor:
Red Wing Post Office again collected donations for the Red Wing Area Food Shelf. We are grateful for the longstanding partnership we have with our local post office. Each year our postal carriers first drop off a bag with the date of pickup at each doorstep and then on the second Saturday of May pick up the generous donations given by our community by their mailboxes.
This year more than 5,000 pounds of food was collected by the postal workers and delivered to the food shelf. Thank you so much to each of the carriers for both delivering the mail faithfully to our homes and for your extra effort to collect and deliver the food to the food shelf. Thank you also to the people of Red Wing for donating the food to help sustain the food shelf. Through your generosity we provide food for over 300 people a month.
Red Wing Area Food Shelf Board of Directors: Peggy Olson, Sue Kelly, Brenda Blahnik, Dee Bender, Dan Bender, Steve Skelton, Ken Bjornstad, Wendy Erickson, Stacey Anderson, Benji Achen and Amy Earney
