Letter carriers carry torch for Help Center
By CONNIE ESH
When letter carriers volunteer to carry extra packages it’s for a good cause.
Many Wilson County residents are not sure where their next meal will come from. That is especially true since the Help Centers’ food shelves are becoming increasingly empty.
But the annual Letter Carriers Food Drive this Saturday will help restock those shelves. May 9 is a day when many Americans stop to think about hunger, thanks to the letter carriers.
Everyone can help. All the food collected in the county will stay here and will go to the Wilson County Help Centers. If everyone takes the grocery bag the carriers leave in their mailboxes, (or just a regular grocery bag) and fills it with non-perishable foods, like canned goods, cereal, crackers and peanut butter; the food drive can restock the Help Centers shelves so hungry Wilson Countians can eat.
Set the bag beside your mail box before your letter carrier passes your house on Saturday, and say a prayer of thanks that you and your family have enough to eat.
