Harvest Hope Stamp Out Hunger Saturday with Postal Service

Harvest Hope Stamp Out Hunger Saturday with Postal Service

Letter carriers with the US Postal Service are used to dropping off packages along their daily delivery routes. "Maybe they've been in a situation like that, too".

He said carriers have already started collecting bags of food before the official collection day, which is this Saturday.

"I think it's really important because there are a lot of people who are hungry in the community", said Laurel. "It's a great way to give back to the community".

Place it by your mailbox on Saturday and a mail carrier will pick it up. "Our local Kiwanis Club members will still help us deliver the food from the Post Office to the Interfaith Food Closet, and we appreciate that".

The donations will eventually make their way to the Roadrunner Food Bank, where volunteers will spend the next several months sorting them all out.

Who will move closer to the middleweight title? While Nunes didn't finish Shevchenko, she did notch her second title defense. Machida, 39, is coming off an impressive decision win over up-and-coming prospect Eryk Anders, giving him his first loss.

Last year, nationally, the drive collected 75 million pounds of non-perishable food, the third highest total. "We depend on it to get us through the summer". Due to the community need and also the support, it is looking for a bigger building. Over the past quarter century, the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive has collected well over one billion pounds of food. Letter carriers hope to top that number this year, and they urge local residents to help. Then their mail carrier picked up the food. The drive helps restock food bank shelves after the holiday season.

"This food drive they do, what better time?"

Higdon added the national Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is timely.

May 12th is national "Stamp Out Hunger" day.
