LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) -

The final numbers are in for the latest Letter Carrier Food Drive, a one-day nationwide food drive when people leave donations of non-perishable food near their mailboxes.  Letter carriers collect the donations.

With your help, letter carriers in the La Crosse area collected nearly 123,000 pounds of food during the drive.  The Food Drive Coordinator says that's up more than 14,000 pounds from last year.

All the food collected stays in our area, to help people in need.
