U.S. Customs and Border Protection employees recently finished their campaign of collecting food for their 'Feds Feed Families; program. This year, CBP employees at the Massena port of entry donated food items and cash with a final collection totaling 2,154 pounds of non-perishable food items. ‘The employees collectively decide who will be the recipient of the food items and this year the St. Patrick-St. Lawrence Food Pantry was chosen,’ CBP officer Lesley Shutts said in a news release. ‘We are like a big family that has an opportunity to help others. This year we voted and chose the Brasher Falls area.’ Above are supervisory CBP officer Nicole Blair-Beckstead, Chief Tracy Casey, CBP officers Justin Polniak, Scott McCracken, Dominic Laurienzo, Lesley Shutts, Nick Shutts, Walt Geiger, Lloyd Russell, Megan Thayer, Nate Cole, Cody Toohill, Keith McConnell and Allison Noble, port director Robert Dwyer and CBP officer Jermaine Mercado.
