The Salem-Troy Baptist Association was the beneficiary of the National Association of Letter-Carriers Food Drive for the second consecutive year.

“We greatly appreciate the letter carriers in Brundidge for donating the non-perishable food items that they collected during this year’s food drive to the Salem-Troy Baptist Association,” said Donnie Dunn, pastor of Banks Baptist Church. “There is always a need for food items and this donation makes it possible for us to offer assistance to more families in need. So, we are very grateful to Brundidge Post Master Ken Strickland and the Brundidge letter carriers, who participated in the food drive, for again selecting the Association as the recipient of the donated food items.”

Dunn also expressed appreciation to all of those who donated non-perishable food items to the drive.

The Association received about 200 bags of food that will help fill the pantry and also add variety to the available food items.

“The Salem-Troy Baptist Association’s food pantry is for anyone who is in need,” Dunn said. “It is open to everyone.”

The food pantry is located in the Association office, which is behind Bush Memorial Baptist Church on George Wallace Drive in Troy.

“Anyone in need is encouraged to come by the Association office and talk with Linda Adams, Association interim director,” Dunn said. “We want to help as many people as we can and the donation of food items from the Brundidge letter carriers will go along way in filling the needs.”
