GP Residents Have Huge Impact on "Stamp Out Hunger" Food Drive

GP Residents Have Huge Impact on "Stamp Out Hunger" Food Drive                

Residents of Grogan's Point proved their generosity last month by donating 1,500 pounds of non-perishable foodstuffs to the 'Stamp Out Hunger' food drive, sponsored by the U.S. Postal Service and the National Association of Letter Carriers.  Roughly 2,500 pounds of food were collected within the two zip codes served by the Pinecroft Drive post office near Town Center, so Grogan's Point basically contributed 60 per cent of the total donated.
 
Lloyd Plourdes and Ken Morris, the two regular mail carriers for Grogan's Point, were busier than ever as they picked up mounds of bags filled with jars, cans and boxes of food during their mail routes on May 14.  All of the donated food went to organizations feeding the hungry in Montgomery County.
