Postal Carriers Collecting Food Donations Saturday

If everyone who reads this blog donates just one item for this food drive, we could help them collect a ton of food! Around this time of year, supplies are low, which is where the drive comes into the picture. He's been working for the Monroe Post Office for 13 years and says it reminds him to always count his blessings.

"It's always nice to give back".

Postal carriers are hoping you will deliver something to your mailbox on Saturday to help your community.

Right now, one in every six Americans are food insecure, equating to 49 million people. Monetary donations can also be made online at feedinghope.org or by calling 405-600-3136.

Last year, letter carriers collected 75.3 million pounds of food from 10,000 cities and towns. "It's a really big impact, for my pantry alone, which is 'Manna for Life Food Pantry, ' that provides us with several months of extra groceries that we can hand out", Clements added.

Stamp Out Hunger is the largest food drive event in the country. "We have volunteers in different neighborhood, but mailmen are picking up food for us too", he says.

With so much food to carry around, things get pretty heavy for the letter carriers.

Regardless of the turn out, Near said the extra work is well worth it if it helps them stamp out hunger.

The National Association of Letter Carriers is teaming up with the Tri-State Food Bank this weekend.

"It's a true community effort and that's exactly what's needed,"Hunger Task Force Executive Director Shelly Fortner said".
