US Postal Service hosts 26th Annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

This comes as part of the 26th annual "Stamp-Out Hunger" food drive, which assists millions of families in the United States struggling to put food on their tables.

People across the country left more than letters out for for the mailman. Organizers say food items collected in the Quad Cities will be given to River Bend Food Bank.

Saturday help is needed at the Salina Emergency Aid Food Bank and the Post Office Dock to help sort the bags of food that come in.

Hopefully there are non-perishable food items in your pantry that you can afford to donate.

Every year the National Association of Letter Carriers asks mail carriers to pick up donations along their normal route, no matter the weather. The food goes directly to local food pantries.

If you're interested in helping, the food bank is looking for extra volunteers to reach their goal, which is around 100,000 pounds of food.

"There's always a need for food", says Aubrey Clark, Food Sourcing and Facilities Manager for the West Ohio Food Bank.

Last year, more than 75 million pounds of food nationally were collected nationally, feeding an estimated 64 million people.

"This particular drive, historically, has provided 70, 80, 90,000 pounds of food", said Deem.

NALC Branch 828 will, according to the release, also collect food in communities with delivery in Greene, Lawrence and Owen counties as well as Martinsville, Odon, Orleans and Paoli.

"We're asking the patrons in the 29706 zip code to participate by donating any non-perishable goods they can spare", said Chester Postmaster Elton Curtis.

Our community has shown many times that it is willing to help out when necessary.
