Stamp Out Hunger set for Saturday

Published 12:34 am Friday, May 10, 2013

Local residents will have a chance to do their part to “stamp out hunger” in the annual event sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers in conjunction with the postal service this weekend.

The event, which is held to help feed families in all 50 states, will be held tomorrow.

Non-perishable items such as canned meats and fish, soup and beans are suggested, as well as peanut butter, juice, pasta, canned vegetables, cereal and rice. Food drive organizers ask that glass containers and items beyond their expiration dates not be included in donations.

Those wanting to participate may place their donations in bags provided by the USPS at their mailboxes on Saturday before the letter carrier arrives with the day’s mail.

Local contributions will go to local charities.
