Letter To The Editor
Postal food drive

May 30, 2012

Dear Editor,

On a very rainy May 12, our community came together to donate an estimated ten tons of food to the local food pantry at Lighthouse of Oakland County, Clarkston office.

This food is expected to feed low income households in our area for the next three to four months.

Many thanks to the Independence Township post office employees who worked hard to promote and execute this very successful food drive to help our neighbors who struggle to put food on the table while also trying to keep the household bills paid.

The Clarkston Lighthouse staff also extends a huge thank you to the many volunteers who showed up at our building that wet Saturday afternoon to unload mail trucks, sort and box food, and stack the heavy boxes in our storage areas.

Our agency depends on community support and has yet to be disappointed in the response when the call goes out for help. And last but not least, thank you to all of the donors for this tremendous amount of food! The caring spirit in this community runs strong and continues to amaze. Thank you for helping.

Connie Stapleton

Lighthouse North manager
