Help Stamp Out Hunger May 14

Dear Editor:

On Saturday, May 14, letter carriers across the country will be picking up Non-perishable food donations as part of the largest one day food drive in America. This year marks the 19th annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.

The number of food insecure households grows every year. Of the people using your local food shelf for assistance, 1 in 4 are children. This means that families are unsure where and when their next meal is coming from. The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive will help to stock the local food shelves during the upcoming summer months when donations tend to taper off.

This year letter carriers in the city of St. Cloud and surrounding communities will take part to help Stamp Out Hunger. Your letter carrier will deliver a reminder card for the date of the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive in your mailbox the week of May 9. Please leave Non-perishable food donations by the mailbox for your letter carrier to pick up during the day on Saturday, May 14.

All food donations will go the local food shelves in the community. Last year your letter carrier helped the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive reach a milestone of over 1 billion pounds of food collected over the previous 18 years of the food drive. This year we look forward to Stamping Out Hunger with your help.

We look forward to Stamping Out Hunger. Please leave Non-perishable food donations by the mailbox on Saturday, May 14.

Your Local Letter Carrier
Rebecca Haas
