Stamp Out Hunger THIS Saturday

SHOALS – The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) will conduct its 31st Annual National Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on Saturday, May 13.  Letter Carriers will join forces with community leaders and others to help fight hunger in the country’s largest single-day food drive. 

To participate in the Stamp Out Hunger food drive, residents are encouraged to leave a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods next to their mailbox prior to the time of regular mail delivery on Saturday, May 13.  Your letter carrier will take care of the rest. 

Life can deal ordinary hard-working people very difficult hands. Millions of Americans live in challenging situations, uncertain of where their next meal will come from or if it will come at all. They’re our customers, our neighbors, our families. They include children and seniors we see along our routes every day.  Some household members may have lost a job, are facing a serious medical condition, or are dealing with an unexpected responsibility of caring for grandchildren. Sadly, one in five households needing help with food is home to a military veteran. So often, this food drive makes a positive difference for them. 

Help make a difference on May 13.  Join your letter carrier in the challenge to end hunger by placing a bag of non-perishable food by your mailbox.
