Help us Stamp Out Hunger

Letter carriers will be collecting food for the Food Bank as they deliver the mail on Saturday, May 8. This is our largest one day food drive bringing in over 200,000 pounds of food every year. If you leave a bag of nonperishable food by your mailbox, prior to your regular mail delivery, on this day, your letter carrier will pick it up and deliver it to the Food Bank.

You can also donate online through the Virtual Food Drive, if you prefer by visiting: /events/upcoming-events.html. When you donate, be sure to choose your post office from the “Company” drop-down menu. This will allow your local letter carrier to get credit for your donation.

Text stamp6 to 30305 for mobile reminders about the Food Drive. (2 -3 texts; standard text message rates apply.)
