Letter Carrier Food Drive a Success

Thanks to All Who Helped

It was a rainy day Saturday, but we thank all who donated, our volunteers and especially our North Adams letter carriers for a successful Letter Carrier Food Drive in the communities of North Adams, Clarksburg and Florida.

Our initial collection was 5,779 lbs. donated in the three communities. More food usually trickles into the post office, so we will give the final total when we have it. At least 40 volunteers helped with the gathering and sorting of the donated items at the former Sears store space in the Steeple City Plaza.

Here are some photos from the day:

Al Nelson, Fran Morandi and Jocelyn Barrett help unload a truck.

Rich Davis weighed most of the food and Fran Berasi, seated, recorded and added the weights.

Our donation sorting system in action.

In the late afternoon we had a big rush.

Al jokes around with two of our letter carriers. Thanks to the Northern Berkshire United Way we were able to offer them, and our sorting volunteers, pizza and water.

Al Nelson recorded the final total.

Thanks to All Involved!
