Volunteer Spotlight: A team effort
By: Jan O’Donnell for the Lake County News-Chronicle, Lake County News Chronicle
This week we are applauding all the volunteers who made the National Association of Letter Carriers Drive to End Hunger so successful on May 11.
Almost 30 volunteers worked for much of Saturday picking up bags of food at mailboxes in our area, transporting the bags to the Arrowhead Transit Hub, where other teams of volunteers unloaded and sorted the foods by type.
Moving over 6100 pounds of food by hand is no small feat! The food shelf greatly appreciates all the dedicated labor that made this event a success. It was a lot of fun for everyone!
