Leave a bag of nonperishable food next to your mail box Saturday for the National Association of Letter Carriers’ annual “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive.
Postal Service letter carriers in southern Arizona will collect the donated food and deliver it to the Community Food Bank, 3003 S. Country Club Road.
“The letter carriers’ food drive is especially important this year as the number of local families seeking our assistnce is increasing every month,” said Bill Carnegie, the food bank’s president and CEO.
Food should be in non-breakable containers and should be put out before your regular mail delivery.
Last year, the food drive collected more than 334,000 pounds of food in southern Arizona.
