To the editor,

I would like to express my appreciation to the community for its support of the Buddy Pack Program this past year. Entities such as ConAgra, which provided the packaging for food, Marshall Lions Club, which made deliveries, and Exchange Bank of Marshall, which provided storage, were incredibly generous.

Because of the community's donations, we are providing food weekly for more than 190 children.

All letters to the editor must be signed by the author, provide contact information and the person's occupation. To encourage diversity, we will publish only one letter from a writer per month on a particular subject. However, we will allow one rebuttal if the author is challenged by another writer.

Letters should be no more than 350 words, and reference an article or public event that has taken place within the past two weeks. Letters are reserved for residents of Saline County and/or those with ties to the county. Letters composed by organizations will not be published. We reserve the right to edit for clarity and content.
