You and Your Mailbox Can Help Stamp Out Hunger This Saturday
This Saturday, you can do something a little different with your mail, or at least your mail box. The second Saturday in May is collection day for over 10,000 letter carriers nationwide. Leave non-perishable food items in a boxes or bags by your mailbox this Saturday May 10th and your friendly neighborhood letter carrier, will collect it along with food dropped off at post offices and begin to deliver to local food banks. The food is sorted, and delivered to an area food bank or pantry, where it is available for needy families.
42 million people face hunger every day, including 13 million children, so you can be part of the solution. Clean out those pantries and leave all non-perishable food items next to your mailbox.
This program is in it's 25th year and has collected over 1 billion pounds of food. Led by letter carries, their national association, volunteers and even retired letter carries.
