The annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive held Saturday “went well,” local officials said Monday.

The National Association of Letter Carriers in conjunction with the postal service holds the event annually.

“I estimate approximately 10,000 to 15,000 pounds,” said Denise Williamson of the Andalusia Post Office. “We donated to the Christian Service Center and Crossover Ministries. We split the routes up and some carriers delivered to the Christian Service Center, and Crossover was here to unload carriers’ trucks as they came in.”

Williamson said the letter carriers appreciate all the donations throughout the county.
