Hunter, who delivers mail from the Palms West Station in West Palm Beach, has contributed to the overall success of the Letter Carrier Food Drive the past 24 years --- and this year was no exception. Hunter promoted the food drive to her colleagues and the public through various communications, including media, and organized the distribution on food drive bags delivered to residents in West Palm Beach and the surrounding area.
