GALLIPOLIS — The Gallipolis Post Office staff and carriers held their annual food drive on Monday.
“Stamp Out Hunger” food drive is sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers. Donated food was collected by carriers and staff at the post office. Boy Scout Troop 201 helped by setting up a table in front of the post office, sorting the food items and delivering it to Grace United Methodist Church food pantry.
Scouts helping were Sloan Brumfield, Michael Larson, Corey Shaw, James Harris, and Noah Ferrell. Also, manning the table was Angie Harris and Genny Ferrell. Delivering the food was Assistant Scoutmaster and postal worker Mike Ferrell. This year, 2,338 pounds of food was collected and $114.20 was donated to purchase additional food items.
Linda Sager received the food and money at the church for the pantry.
