Stamp Out Hunger postal service food drive Saturday!

Posted May 11, 2012

The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers is tomorrow, Saturday, 5/12.  This is such an easy way to donate some of your overstock to some folks who could really use the help!   I challenge you to donate even a small bag of groceries.

Click HERE for more information from the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina about who benefits from your food donations.

All you need to do is leave a bag of non-perishable food by your mailbox or you can deliver it to your local post office on Saturday, May 12. This is a nationwide food drive, so everyone can participate! Pass this on to all your friends in every state!

According to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina website, nearly 300,000 pounds were collected last year for their Food Bank.  To see a list of needed items, click HERE. Do not include any glass containers.

If everyone who reads this blog donates just one bag for this food drive, we could help them collect far more than 300,000 lbs of food!

    Put my bag out too. I included some soup, canned veggies, coffee and a box of instant potatoes. It does feel good to feel like you are helping even if it is is only a bag of food.

    Put my bag full of goodies inside the post office vehicle this morning. Good feeling to give!

    My stock is down. Sent care package to friend on medical leave and some sent to church monthly giveaway so I'm going to have to find some good deals in a hurry tonight! I love to give. It always comes back tenfold!
