Annual Clark County food drive seeks donations, volunteers

By , Columbian staff writer

The National Association of Letter Carriers is looking for donations and volunteers for its Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive for Clark County on May 13.

To donate food, Clark County residents can leave bags of nonperishable foods by their mailbox on the morning of May 13, which will be picked up by mail carriers or volunteers.

The organization is seeking volunteer drivers with large vehicles to collect food from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Organizers will host orientation sessions at 11 a.m. at the east Vancouver DCU Post Office and the Vancouver Main Post Office.

“Our drive’s timing is crucial,” said Don Young, the drive’s organizer. “By springtime, many pantries are depleted, entering the summer low on supplies at a time when many school breakfast and lunch programs are not available to children in need.”

The organization has hosted the food drive annually since 1992, and hopes to exceed 100,000 pounds of donations this year.

For more information, contact Young via email at postal44@comcast.net.
