Food Drive Results

The Post Office in Maryville held its annual food drive last Saturday to benefit the Maryville Ministry Center Food Pantry.

This year the "Stamp out Hunger" food drive brought in just over 34 hundred pounds of food for starving families in the area, which is 800 pounds more than last year. Postmaster Paul Eschbacher, who heads the event, was very pleased with the results of this year's drive.
