To the editor:

On behalf of Southington Bread for Life, Southington Community Services and The Tabernacle Giving Back Food Program, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you, the residents of Southington, for your contribution to the Annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on May 9. We are also grateful to our local postal carriers for the extra time and effort they devoted to this worthy cause. In addition, thank you to the Southington YMCA for opening its Child Development Center that was used as a central sorting location and the United Way of Southington volunteers who assisted with the pickups.

The food was distributed equally among the three non-profits in Southington.

Without all of you, we could not have collected food to help feed the hungry in our community.

Executive director of Bread for Life
