Baileigh Boydston, a Parsons High School sophomore, loads the last tub of donated food into a U.S. Postal Service vehicle Friday afternoon for the 21st annual National Association of Letter Carriers Food Drive. An estimated 302 pounds of food were donated from PHS, and Parsons generally gives about 4,500 pounds of food during the drive, which includes residents leaving cans of food in sacks at their mailboxes today. Nationally, more than 1 billion pounds of food have been donated. This food was headed to Labette Assistance Center for its food pantry.
