  • Volunteers, Donations Sought For Annual Postal Food Drive, Saturday

    The 23rd Annual Letter Carriers Food Drive will be held on Saturday, May 9. The drive is a major supplier of food to the Newtown Salvation Army Food Pantry that is located in the office of Newtown Social Services.

    Organizers say there are several ways the public, ages 12 and up, can help that day.

    First, leave a bag of nonperishable food items in a sturdy bag by your mailbox as early as possible Saturday morning and remind your neighbors to do the same.
