Letter to the Editor
Lighthouse thanks for community support

May 29, 2013

Dear Editor,

The Clarkston Lighthouse food pantry has been very lean the last several weeks with food donations barely getting to the shelves before being packed for a hungry family.

This has now changed since the more than an estimated twenty thousand pounds of food came to our building on Saturday May 11. The annual ‘Stamp out Hunger’ post office food drive was a tremendous success this year.

Our food shelves and storage areas are full once again thanks to the efforts of the Independence Township United States Postal Service employees, the generous community members and the many volunteers that came to box the donated food on Saturday.

Once again the caring spirit of our community was evident and strong. I am proud to not only be associated with Lighthouse of Oakland County, Clarkston but also the amazing community in which I live. Thank you to everyone who made this year’s event so successful.

Connie Stapleton
