Local letter carriers collected more than 1 ton of food Saturday as part of their first participation in the National Association of Letter Carriers campaign.
Although final totals haven't been released, the letter carriers collected 71.3 million pounds, nationally, last year.
"Not bad for our first drive, and the weather was not very conducive," said spokesman Greg Karn, Branch 670 NALC, Brazil.
This was also the 14th year for the NALC's annual food drive. The theme was, "Nice Day for a Drive."
