To the Editor:

The New Milford Food Bank would like to thank the United States postal carriers of New Milford for an amazing campaign this year with “Stamp Out Hunger.”

Nineteen postal trucks delivered 5,250 pounds of food on May 14. These donations will help feed over 280 families through weekly distributions from the food bank.

In addition, donations will help Loaves and Fishes Hospitality House serve daily meals to 20 to 30 people.

We would also like to thank all New Milford residents who so generously left nonperishable food donations by their mailboxes.

And, lastly, our special gratitude to volunteers from the NMHS French Honor Society, Kent School, the Youth Volunteer Corps of Western CT, and the New Milford Food Bank and Loaves and Fishes, who worked tirelessly to help sort and stock the pantries.

This is a very important event that we look forward to every year as a critical means of helping local families with their food needs.

If anyone did not have the opportunity to donate and would like to, please bring nonperishables to the Food Bank at New Milford Social Services, 40 Main St., second floor, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, or to Loaves & Fishes, 40 Main St., lower level, from 3 to 5:30 p.m. daily.

Hunger doesn’t take a vacation.

With immense appreciation, we thank you.
