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.
In years past, we’ve written about the annual
Dining Out For Life charity event, during which restaurants help raise money for AIDS service organizations.

Desert AIDS Project, which is great, but what about the rest of the Inland Empire?
Well…we’ve got good news: For the first time,
Foothill AIDS Project is going to be a beneficiary.
