Donate Food to Stamp Out Hunger

April 18, 2018

It’s almost time to take part in the 26th annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. Launched in 1994 by the National Association of Letter Carriers, the drive was established to collect food for those experiencing food instability. This year the food drive takes place on Saturday, May 12.

There are many ways you can participate, and we’ll be hosting food drives in Carrington locations. If you’d like to go the extra mile, host a food drive with other Associates or your neighbors. Encourage everyone to bring an item (or two or three) to contribute. You can also leave a bag or box of non-perishable items by your home mailbox on Saturday, May 12, for your letter carrier to collect. And you can donate to the cause online at givehealthy.org.

This is the time of year when food banks start to run low on supplies, so please give if you can. (There will be food drives in all Carrington locations in May, too.) Send us photos of your donations, especially if you organize a group effort. Because health and wellness are just as important as providing meals, please try to give healthy, nutritional food. Let’s make a difference in our communities and help those in need.
