Lane County letter carriers collecting canned food
If you live in Lane County, your postal worker can help you take part in a countywide food drive today and next Saturday.
People can leave canned food by their mailbox, and their letter carrier will collect it and help get it to FOOD for Lane County.
The agency is serving more people with less food in its warehouse this year. The goal is to collect 120,000 pounds of food.
