Letter to Editor: This community is awesome


Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the people of this community who donated 2,945 pounds of food and $200 to our local food shelf during the Stamp Out Hunger campaign. Thank you to the 20-some local U.S. Postal Service employees who distributed cards and bags and picked up the food. A giant thank you also goes out to Park Rapids Boy Scout Troop 58 who spent their day weighing and sorting food. Also thank you to Hugo's and Coborn's for their contributions and a thanks for the media coverage we received. Last, but certainly not least, I'd like to thank the volunteers at our local food shelf who put away all these groceries. Thank you not just for this daunting task but for your work throughout the year. This truly is an awesome community.
