Help stamp out hunger

On Saturday, May 11, letter carriers will conduct the nation's largest single-day food drive to benefit local communities

On Saturday, May 11, our nation’s letter carriers will pick up food donations from doorsteps and mailboxes along their route to help feed the hungry in the 21st annual "Stamp Out Hunger" food drive.  “Stamp Out Hunger” is the largest, single-day food collection in the United States.

To make a donation simply leave a bag of nonperishable food items by your mailbox on Saturday, May 11, 2013, and your letter carrier will do the rest.

Your donation stays local and will help feed the needy in our community.  The food is sorted by letter carriers and volunteers at the post office and then it is all delivered to a local food pantry, soup kitchen, or homeless shelter.  In these uncertain economic times, it is more important than ever to come together as a community and help one another.

Show your union and community solidarity by making a food donation during this year’s “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive.  Be sure to leave a bag of nonperishable food items by your mailbox on Saturday, May 11, and thank a letter carrier for doing the rest!
