8,673 lbs. of food collected
The 20th annual NALC Food Drive was held May 11 and was a big success with 8,673 pounds of food collected.
This event would not have been possible without the help of city and rural letter carriers and their families, Journey Church, The Almost Home, New Beginning, Safe Harbor, Northeastern Mental Health, The Salvation Army and United Way of Northeastern South Dakota.
Thanks to Sanford Health Aberdeen for funding leaflets that were put in grocery bags throughout the week. Thanks to Domino’s, Subway, Ken’s SuperFair Foods and Kessler’s for their support and donations. Last but not least, thanks to the American News, Dakota Broadcasting and Pheasant Country radio for the publicity.
