Ennis lends a hand in canned food drive


Mark Warde, [email protected]

The annual canned food drive by the Letter Carriers in Ennis is Saturday. All around town and in surrounding communities citizens will set aside bags or boxes fill with food products that will be picked up by letter carriers on Saturday.

With a goal of surpassing last year’s collection of 10,720 pounds, the project’s haul will go directly towards restocking the shelves of Helping Hands of Ennis. The organization eagerly awaits the donated goods.

“The food drive pantry is so important,” local postal carrier Anna Gunn said. “Our summer lunch program relies on what is given each May. This project helps at a time when our supplies are very depleted.”
