You see them everyday but Sunday, and Saturday, United States mail carriers in Pitt County decided to not only deliver but to pick up as well.
Its all part of a United Way Food Drive, enlisting the help of those who bring us our letters, and unfortunately our bills too. Saturday, people could donate non-perishable food items like canned goods, or boxed items, leave them at the mail box, and mail carriers would take them up from there. According to a mail carrier we caught up with, lots of people got involved including some of our brightest minds at ECU.
The food drive ended Saturday, and all the food items were picked up at the Main Post Office in downtown Greenville where they will be distributed to a number of organizations.
