National Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Results

Well, we had a wonderful time last Saturday – we collected TWO semi-trucks of food! The total weight isn’t in yet, but last year we only had 1.5 semis of food….. so things are lookin’ good this year! Check out some photos below, and click on our Flickr feed to the right to see more. A huge THANK YOU to all our volunteers, the Postal Service, the Letter Carriers themselves, our food bank staff, and last but not least – YOU, the Wallingford community, for coming together and showing us all that food security is important to you!

Not a Number Kids Club Supports FamilyWorks

The Wallingford community’s Not a Number Kids Club presented a giant check representing the $308 they gathered in donation to Familyworks’ Yes We Can canned food drive and fundraiser, in which the community was asked to raise $44 or 44 cans over 44 days in honor of the inauguration of the 44th president. The Kids Club also donated over 44 cans, as well as the $308, which represented $44 multiplied by 7, the age of Obama’s youngest daughter.

We’re having some technical cell-phone-picture-to-computer issues at the moment, but we hope to get a photo of the kids up soon. Thank you, Not a Number!
