After a two-year hiatus caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Association of Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger food drive returned this year, bringing in nearly 40,000 pounds of food and $36,373 in donations. The food drive took place throughout the month of May.

Cash donations from the community totaled $6,373. The National Association of Letter Carriers’ local and national branches contributed $30,000.

“I personally want to thank everyone that participated in the drive: city carriers, rural carriers, clerks, mail handlers, supervisors, management personnel and all the volunteers that helped with the picking up and unloading of the donations,” organizer Don Young said.
