On Saturday, May 11th, River Region United Way, United Way Worldwide, Campbell Soup Company, Publix and others will join forces with the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) to support Feeding America and help Stamp Out Hunger across America. Now in its 21st year, the annual food drive helps provide assistance to millions of Americans struggling to put food on the table.
The Stamp Out Hunger food drive benefits Feeding America, the largest domestic hunger-relief organization in the country, which includes affiliates like the Montgomery Area Food Bank. In 2012, letter carriers collected food donations from 10,000 communities, helping to put millions of meals on the tables of Americans in need.
YOU can help by leaving a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods items next to your mailbox on Saturday, May 11. Letter carriers will be collecting items like these:
The nation’s 175,000 letter carriers, representing nearly 1,500 NALC branches in more than 10,000 communities, will collect these food donations as they deliver the mail and take them to a local Feeding America food bank or hunger-relief organization like the Montgomery Area Food Bank.
Thanks for helping the hungry in our River Region!
