The 20th National Association of Letter Carrier "Stamp Out Hunger" Food Drive was a success on May 12. Here in Perry County, over 2,564 pounds of food was collected. That was 611 pounds more food
than last year.
Many thanks to the following volunteers from our local food pantries who helped sort and distribute the donated food: Evelyn Adams, Ed and Ann Skiba from Jasper’s
Pantry in Cannelton; Tish Putnam, Brenda and Carroll Goffinet, from Widow’s
Barrel; Michael, Julie, Johnathan, Kayla, Justin, Lena, and Isaiah Rounds from
Living Bread; Marlene and Leroy Oser from Martin’s Cloak in Siberia; Janice
Davis, Dorothy and Dan Goble, Kenny and Linda Ziegelgruber, Rose Ziegelgruber, and
Georgann Gogel from the Council of Agencies; Anna Lou Howe, and John, Steve and
Heather Terry from Community Adventist Services.
The United Way of Perry County would like to
commend our local postmaster for going above and beyond the call of duty by
providing lunch for his employees and our volunteers. The local postal employees on hand to help out that day were: Ray Robins, Renita
Spinner, Kim Zellers, Rodney Young, Sheena Henson, Paula Dunn, Sharon Henson,
Shannon Stiff, Wayne Ubelhor, Crystal Roark, Teresa Kloeppel, Gina Braunecker, Stephanie
Cook, Carolyn Gray, Kristy Casebolt, Trina Severson, Jeremy Smith, and James
Daum. The Postmaster would also like to
thank the clerk staff Ginger Richardson, Sharon Peter, and Jan James.
As we anticipate the food needs of
our community increasing in the coming months, we encourage businesses and
organizations to conduct food drives or make monetary donations to our local pantries
to help them restock their shelves and meet the needs of the hungry in Perry
