Editor, the Advocate:
Thank you, postal patrons, for taking part in the 21st annual food drive May 11.
On behalf of all city and rural route mail carriers, I want to thank every one of our customers for their donations. About 47,055 pounds of food were collected, all staying in Victoria and surrounding communities. I personally collected food in the Country Club/Magruder Drive area. I filled my mail truck - twice!
Also, I would like to thank the Food Bank personnel and all the volunteers who came to help unload the groceries from our trucks on our return to the office and sort out the food.
Thank you for the pizza and drinks that awaited us on our return.
We look forward to the next food drive - to help our customers feed their hungry families. That is our real goal.
Postal carriers are heroes, too!
