The annual effort by the National Association of Letter Carriers encourages folks to set out non-perishable food items at their mailbox. Mailmen and mailwomen then pick up the items as they deliver mail on their Saturday route.

Greg Manlief, letter carrier for the United State Postal Service in Lawrenceburg, says that the office gathered over 3,000 lbs. of food donations from the 47025 zip code.

“Thanks to everybody who set something out for us,” Manlief said.

The donations gathered by the Lawrenceburg post office will be delivered to four area food pantries: St. Vincent DePaul Food Pantry in Lawrenceburg, The Dearborn County Clearinghouse, First Baptist Church of Greendale, and North Dearborn Food Pantry.
