Employees of the Perry office of the U.S. Postal Service participated Saturday in the 27th annual National Association of Letter Carriers’  Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.

Bags of food and other items were collected on Saturday from local folks by the mail carriers and delivered Monday to the Perry-Area Food Pantry.

USPS Carriers Deanna Eiteman and Cory Stika delivered more than 1,500 pounds — three-quarters of a ton — to the pantry, filling the facility’s annex to the limit.

Perry-Area Food Pantry Site Manager Lou Hoger said the first van load was huge, and then Eiteman and Stike told him they would be back with another van load. Hoger expressed deep gratitude to all who donated and to the U.S. Postal Service workers for their labors.
