We're excited about this weekend! It's the Letter Carriers' Food Drive on Saturday, May 14, 2011. And you can help!
This Saturday is when letter carriers around the northern Black Hills and all across the country, working in partnership with the U.S. Postal Service, will be collecting food for families in need.
It's always a very busy time for those of us at the Spearfish Community Food Pantry, but we relish this opportunity!
You can help by filling a bag of non-perishable food items and leaving it at your mailbox for pickup and delivery to our food pantry. By donating items like canned meat, fish, soup, vegetables, bottled juice, cereal, pasta and rice that don't require refrigeration, you can help us stock our shelves of these dwindling items. We ask that you do not donate items that have expired or that are in glass containers.
Your generosity will help us serve the many needy families in the Spearfish and St. Onge area.

Our hats off to the National Association of Letter Carriers -- especially the guys and gals from the local post offices -- who do a terrific job in collecting your donated items!
And THANK YOU for your generous donations.
