Letter Carriers Well Above Food Drive Goal In Lax Area
They were hoping just to beat last year's goal...but came out about 25 per cent over the mark.
Organizers of the Letter Carriers' Food Drive in the La Crosse area collected 125-thousand pounds of food on May 12th. That compares to 100-thousand pounds collected a year ago. Kyle Brown from the Great Rivers United Way says donations collected at drop-off sites in La Crosse and Onalaska will go to charities within those communities. The letter carriers' food campaign has been conducted every May for 20 years.
