“That’s our way of thanking the many supporters that we have throughout the year and saying ‘thank you’ to our caring community,” Kidd said and added that a special thank you goes to the U.S. Post Office in Troy for the donation of canned foods that were collected and donated on Saturday, May13 during the “Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive.

“We can’t adequately thank the Troy Post Office letter carriers and those who donate canned food to replenish our food pantry.

The Pike County Salvation Army stands ready to help meet the needs of friends and neighbors during times of personal hardships and in emergency situations.

The Salvation Army is also available and ready to assist other communities during natural disasters and with other long-term recovery efforts, Kidd said.
