Local community members say Saturday's Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive was a success.
The Salvation Army was just one of at least 15 organizations that received canned goods collected from the drive.
The local branch President for the National Association of Letter Carriers says they collected 35 to 40 thousand pounds of food from homes across several cities.
Some of those cities were Bowling Green, Glasgow, Morgantown, Franklin, and Cave City.
"There's quite a few people in the area who needed it and nationwide, there are a lot of people who are hurting with the gas prices and everything else, and they just need this help to get by so they can feed their families and keep their homes and things like that," says Ron Henry, a local branch President of the National Association of Letter Carriers.
The event is held locally every year in conjunction with a nation wide food drive.
