CURLEW, WASH.—The U.S. Border Patrol's Curlew, Wash. station collected more than 800 pounds of non-perishable food during the 2013 Feds Feed Families Food Drive.
With considerable help from the U.S. Department of Labor's AmeriCorps, and convenient drop-off points provided by the local U.S. Postal Service offices in Malo, Curlew, and Republic, the event was a tremendous success. During the past three years the Curlew station has collected and donated nearly 2,000 pounds of food to the Ferry County Food Bank.
We would like to thank everyone for their donations and the Ferry County citizens for their continued support in this important contribution to our community.
