Letter Carriers Food Drive
To help “Stamp Out Hunger” in Southern Arizona, residents are asked leave a bag of non-perishable food, such as canned meats, canned vegetables, canned soups, cereal, peanut butter, canned fruit or canned tomato products next to their mail box before the time of their mail delivery on Saturday, May 12. Food should be in non-breakable containers. Letter carriers and volunteers will collect the food donations and forward them to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.

Monetary donations will be accepted for the “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive and on-line donations may be made as well.

I just found this out because I picked up my mail. I wish they would give more than a day’s notice. I just returned from grocery shopping and have very few canned goods on hand; would have bought more.
