    Stamp Out Hunger, the 26th Annual National Association of Letter Carriers food drive is Saturday, May 12th. Letter carriers across the country will collect food donations as they deliver mail along their route. We hope to collect over a million pounds of food for Oregon and Clark County, WA during this one day event.

    Leave your canned food donations out for you letter carrier to pick up using the bag provided through your mail service. Or make a monetary donation at a Wells Fargo ATM.

    All food and funds raised benefits the Oregon Food Bank Network.

    This will be the 11th year that I've been in involved in this. It's the largest one day food drive in Oregon. Again this year I'm in charge of the Multnomah Village Post Office and will be leading a group of 40 volunteers. While the letter carriers pick up the donated food on their routes it's up to the volunteers to take it from the vehicles, sort it, pack it and load it to be shipped back to the Oregon Food Bank.

    Please, even if it's just a couple of cans please donate tomorrow. It's a great cause!

    Also I am authorized to sign any Community Service forums for high school, college and criminals if you wish to volunteer and receive credit for the hours worked.

    Not just Oregon, I found a bag in my mailbox. Tried to concentrate on protein sources since I know too many people donate crackers - tuna, beans, chicken soup, minestrone, peanut butter, also some oatmeal & cans of fruit.

    She loves getting involved in these things. Her (my) school makes meals for a shelter every other month, and she's really enjoyed going to help serve that evening.

    My father was a 20 year postal carrier. Every xmas we would be overwhelmed with gifts and food baskets from the people on his route.

    I am well aware of how much food the post office picks up. Tons of food. Literally. Its a great cause. We fill up a couple bags every year.
