The postman won’t just be making special deliveries this weekend, he or she will be making special pick ups too.
It’s your chance to help ‘Stamp Out Hunger.”
You can leave a bag of non-perishable food items next to your mailbox on Saturday, May 10th.
Postal carriers will pick it up a part of their annual food drive.
Folks in the Big Bend donated 85,000 pounds – or two tractor trailers full – of food during the drive last year. Second Harvest hopes to top 100,000 pounds this year.
“The donations tend to dry up this time of year and this postal food drive every year helps us get through the summertime feeding the folks in need in our community,” said Second Harvest CEO Rich English.
Stamp Out Hunger is a national food drive now in its 22nd year. Last year it helped to feed 30 million people.
Just have your non-perishables by your mailbox in time for your regular mail delivery on Saturday.
