Postal Service Food Drive

It started out like this: A Post on Facebook
Southeast Alaska FoodBank
Just a reminder: the USPS's Stamp Out Hunger food drive is coming up on Saturday the 11th. We're going to need help transporting, sorting, and stocking these donations, so please let us know if you or your group would be interested in helping us that day. Thanks.
So we put out an email to the Club to see if anyone wanted to volunteer some time and help out. 

We heard from Lion Allen who thought this would be a great project for his Boy Scout Troop 247.  They would join Lion Mike N.
 And we agree.  Those boys rocked!
They worked for 2 hours today sorting through canned goods and other food items.
All in all, we sorted and handled 2,231 pounds of donated food that will help feed our community. But equally important, we had a great time and met some really nice people, Darren and Judy from SE Alaska Food Bank.  Who knows, maybe we've started a new partnership....
