Help! Stamp Out Hunger!
On Saturday, May 9th, letter carriers will again help Stamp Out Hunger! ™ across America with your help in order to provide assistance to the one in eight Americans who struggle with hunger. The Stamp Out Hunger! effort is the nation's largest single-day food drive, having collected more than 909 million pounds of food since its inception in 1993. Last year, letter carriers across the country collected a record total of more than 73.1 million pounds of food, but with hunger impacting many Americans– including working families, children and the elderly – help is needed now more than ever before. There is simply no easier way to help the community than to contribute nonperishable food items through the Letter Carriers Food Drive on Saturday, May 9th. Place your donated food items in a bag near your mailbox that day, and your letter carrier will pick up and deliver the food to Second Harvest Food Bank. Then, the items will be distributed by Second Harvest Food Bank to emergency food pantry programs throughout the community.
Most needed items include: canned tuna or chicken, peanut butter, canned soup, fruit, vegetables, rice and macaroni & cheese.
