Postal carriers collected a total of 24,300 pounds of food from customers on their routes.
We also would like to thank Publix for the food drive grocery bags they provided us even though they haven’t broken ground yet. Those bags helped us to double what we normally collect.
The best part is all the food collected from Rome postal customers stays here in Rome. Your donations help stock the shelves at food pantries at the Open Door Home, Star House, Action Ministries, Rome Community Kitchen, Greater Bethlehem Temple and others.
Again thanks to all for donating.
