May 12 Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive--Two Ways to Help

on Thu, 04/19/2018 - 19:23

Saturday, May 12 is the annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive conducted by the National Association of Letter Carriers. This is an important drive for food pantries around the country, including us. There are two ways you can help this year. First, leave non-expired, nonperishable food and/or personal items (no glass containers, please) in or near your mailbox. Your letter carrier will bring everything to the food pantry at the end of his/her route.

What happens when all this stuff reaches the pantry? We sort and store it, and that's your second opportunity to help. We're looking for volunteers between 2:30 and 6:00, at the pantry, downstairs in Town Center, 12 Mudge Way, Bedford. If you can't be there the whole time, no problem--an hour or two would be great. We'll have pizza around 4:30, and will gladly sign high schoolers' Community Service forms. If you're available, please use the Contact link above. Thanks!
