Today (5/11/13) letter carriers across the country will be collecting food to stamp out hunger for families in need!
It is so easy to help, just get a bag and put a few non perishable food items in it and then place that bag inside or if it won’t fit, place the bag on the side of your mailbox so your mail person can pick it up and deliver it to the local food banks.
The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is the largest one-day food drive in the nation and will help feed millions of families in all 50 states! SO…pack your cans of soup, bottles of Juice, canned fruits and veggies, Duncan Hines brownie mixes, Propel Waters, etc. and place them in a bag.
If you don’t have anything in your stockpile you can donate, you can do what my sister did last year. She went to Walmart with her coupons and purchased a few things to donate! My sister only spent like $2 – $3 to help someone else, and she didn’t purchase the most expensive things!
Please help. Think about if it were your family who didn’t have breakfast this morning or dinner tonight. Wouldn’t you want help? All we are asking you to do is help the best way you can. I am not too proud to tell you all that the local food bank did help my family 4 years ago when things got hard and my husband was out of work on workman’s comp. I am thankful that they were there and that I do not have to go there now. However when I got up this morning, that was the first thing I did was put food in a bag and put it in my mailbox. To us, it’s like a payback thing, because we got help when we needed it.
Please join us in helping to “Stamp Out Hunger!”
