Letter to the Editor
Food drive successful, no thanks to News

May 22, 2013

Dear Editor,

I would like to thank the Clarkston community for the generousity shown during this years annual letter carrier food drive. While we are still addiing up the totals, I can say for certain it was a huge success. We should have no problem filling the shelves at Lighthouse North.

I am, however, greatly disappointed in The Clarkston News for their lack of participation relating to the announcement of the drive. With proper timing, the News was given two articles concerning the drive to pull a statement from and place a helpful and informative article.

Instead, such an important event concerning the entire community was granted two sentences next to the obituaries located towards the end of the paper. Many letter carriers were both angry and upset at the lack of consideration given to such a worthy cause.

I can only hope that next year The Clarkston News will find it in their heart to provide us with an article equal to the magnitude of the food drive.

If you happened to miss the food drive, you can still drop off non-perishables at both the Clarkston Post Office and/or Lighthouse North, located on Sashabaw Road.

Thank you residents,

Shellie Kent

City Carrier, Clarkston
