Letters to the Editor

Lincoln Daily News welcomes letters of appreciation, information and opinion on matters pertaining to the community. 
Controversial issues:
As a community we need to be able to talk openly about matters that affect the quality of our lives. The most effective and least offensive manner to get your point across is to stick to the issue and refrain from commenting on another person's opinion. Letters that deviate from focusing on the issue may be rejected or edited and marked as such.

Postal carriers and community thanked for recent food drive

Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

Central Illinois Economic Development Corp. -- Community Action would like to thank the Lincoln post office and postal carriers for all the food that was collected and donated to us on Saturday, May 12. It helped tremendously in stocking the food pantry, which in turn assisted us in feeding the many low-income individuals we serve.

CIEDC's food pantry is open daily Monday through Friday, so we see a vast majority of needy individuals on an ongoing basis throughout the year. This large donation of food helps us greatly.

Also, we'd like to give a special thanks to the concerned community members who donated this food.

Kathy Shepherd and Angelia Hobbs
CIEDC Community Service Program
