Saturday, May 13, 2017, is the United States Postal Service Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. This is the largest one-day food drive in America. The national 2016 drive collected more than 80 million pounds of non-perishable food. This year’s 2017 drive marks the twenty-fifth annual drive. All food collected stays local and is distributed through Neighbors in Need.
You can participate by placing a bag or bags of non-perishable food by your mailbox on the morning of Saturday, May 13, for your letter carrier. If you have a post office box, you can leave your donation at your local post office in Hot Springs, Marshall, or Mars Hill. Donations will be picked up from the post offices as they come in and will be brought to Neighbors in Need where they will be placed in the pantry and distributed to Madison County residents experiencing a crisis.
Proceeds from the Letter Carriers’ food drive helps fill our pantry for the summer months until the annual November food drive at Ingles so please give generously!
