Community Food Bank looking for volunteersby Carli Brosseau on Apr. 20, 2009, under Local, Taste
The Community Food Bank is looking for volunteers to gather food donations during the National Association of Letter Carriers’ Food Drive, usually one of the year’s largest collections.
Last year, more than 334,000 pounds of food were collected in one day, the nonprofit said in a news release.
This year’s drive is scheduled for May 9.
The food bank is especially in need of volunteers to work in post offices from 2 to 6 p.m. There are morning shifts available as well.
Volunteers are also needed to drive their own trucks to collect food and to transfer food from letter carriers’ trucks into semi trailers.
To sign up, call 622-0525 Ext. 204.
