The annual postal carriers Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is scheduled for this Saturday (May 11).
United States Postal Service workers who are members of the National Association of Letter Carriers will once again collect non-perishable food items which are left at or near residents’ mailboxes. The food will be delivered to food banks in the local area.
The program was begun in 1992, and a total of more than 1.2 billion pounds of food have been collected in the interim through drives held all around the country.
Donations should be limited to foods in non-breakable containers such as cans or boxes, and should be left near your mailbox in sturdy bags that can easily be retrieved by those doing the collection work.
