The National Association of Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger food drive, the largest single-day food drive in the country, returns this Saturday (May 14).
It’s simple to participate! Just root through your pantry and gather some non-perishable items (please make sure that they’re not expired and avoid glass containers) and bag them up.
Then just put them by your mailbox before the carrier comes on Saturday.
Of course, if you want to pick up a few things to donate during your next grocery run, even better!
The carriers will also accept baby food, toiletries and pet food. The food banks accepting the donations will pass along the toiletries and pet food to where they need to go.
The food will be distributed to local food banks — here in the Inland Empire, it’s Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino — so your donations are helping those here locally.
Volunteer opportunities may also be available. Contact your local post office for more info, or Feeding America’s Stephany Perea at email@example.com or 951-359-4757, Ext. 110.
NALS is also promoting a Thunderclap campaign to help spread the word through social media. Click here to add your support.
