Food drive bag explanation

May 18, 2012

Conclusion jumper's response to Daniel L. Florkowski, president Michigan State Association of Letter Carriers.

In no way was I jumping into any conclusion. Someone, whether it be Kohl's, Johnson Controls or whatever, someone paid some really good money on printing those bags. Was this the best use of those funds? That is what I was asking. I am in full support of the food drive. I put a bag of food out on my steps. I was heartened to see all of the bags in this area, full of donated food. It was great. I wasn't accusing anyone of using taxpayer funds. I applaud everyone involved.

Last week, I took five or six bags full of plastic bags to St. Vincent De Paul. Last time, I took them to Goodwill. In just a week, I already have another bag full. Am I the only one? Maybe the money that Kohl's and Johnson Controls (or whoever) spent on purchasing and printing those bags, could have been used to buy a couple of truckloads of food. I'm just saying.

"They were donated." Great - I didn't mean to step on somebody's toes. Let's hope there is a 21st food drive.
