It never ceases to amaze me when I hear about the continuing generosity of Postal Service employees.
In Buffalo, NY, employees at two Post Offices — Williamsville Branch and Westside Station — are helping to feed those less fortunate this Thanksgiving.
Employees from the two offices donated more than 70 turkeys plus grocery bags filled with other food to local food banks so others could share in the Thanksgiving bounty.
“Our employees have been donating food at Thanksgiving for several years,” said Williamsville Supervisor Tim McKibbin. “This year, the employees of the Westside Station decided to join us in our efforts.” 
Westside Manager Paul Urbanski said that his employees were pleased to give to those in need. “We hope the food makes Thanksgiving a little brighter for many families in our community.”
