Letter carriers help stamp out hunger May 12

May 12 marks the 26th anniversary of America’s great day of giving when the local USPS celebrates National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Food drive.

Carriers throughout the community will be collecting food donations in Rugby May 12. Rural carriers will also be collecting, and there should be a bag left in your mailbox for the donations. Non-perishable foods will be collected, which are needed for the food banks.

Participation this year is easy. Simply leave your food donation in a bag by your mailbox on Saturday. May 12, and your letter carrier will pick up the donation on his normal delivery.
