MARANA — For the 20th consecutive year the National Association of Letter Carriers and the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona will team up to collect donations on May 12, for the annual “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive
“This is the 20thAnniversary of the Letter Carriers Food Drive,” said Bill Carnegie, Food Bank CEO. “The problem of hunger in our community has never been greater and we need our community to help make this year’s food drive a success. Thousands of local families are counting on your support.”
To help “Stamp Out Hunger” in southern Arizona, residents are asked leave a bag of non-perishable food, such as canned meats, canned vegetables, canned soups, cereal, peanut butter, canned fruit or canned tomato products next to their mail box before the time of their mail delivery on May 12. Food should be in non-breakable containers. Letter carriers and volunteers will collect the food donations and forward them to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.
Monetary donations will be accepted for the “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive and on-line donations may be made at www.communityfoodbank.org, under “donations.”
