Donations were remarkable with 6,090 pounds of food collected. Post 2 also received monetary donations which were used to purchase additional, non-perishable food items.

On Monday, December 16, 2013, Post 2 personnel loaded one full-size van and one full-size pickup truck with the donated food. The food was then transported to local agencies which help those in need in the Post 2 District.
