The Taylorville Post Office had a record collection for the National Association of Letter Carriers’ “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive this year. The Taylorville office collected over 20,000 pounds or 10 tons of food for those in the area in need. This was the 25th year the drive has been held nationwide.
Brent Cornell is the food drive coordinator at the Taylorville Post Office. He says that handing out bags has played a big role in collection numbers in recent years.
Cornell says one retired letter carrier in particular did great work for this year’s drive.
The “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive happens the second Saturday in May every year. If you would still like to donate food for the cause, you can bring it in to the post office anytime.
