Postal food drive called a success I want to take this opportunity to publicly thank Burbank postal workers and the generous residents of this fair city for the wonderful outpouring of food that the Burbank Temporary Aid Center received from last month's postal food drive. More than 33,000 food items were donated, which will enable us to provide groceries for our hungry neighbors for weeks to come. Together with our regular collections from churches, temples, the National Charity League and our many individual donors, this postal collection will provide a wonderful base of nonperishable foodstuffs to last us through the summer months.
