Thank you to everyone who pulled together May 11 to bring in much-needed food donations for the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.
The final donation numbers are still being tallied, but 2013 looks to be another big year for the drive, with record donations reported in some places. For example, the Walterboro, SC, Post Office says Saturday’s event brought in 14,250 pounds of donations, nearly doubling the 7,500 pounds collected in 2012.
Since the program began in 1992, USPS employees and the public have contributed more than 1.1 billion pounds of non-perishable food, making this annual food drive the nation’s largest one-day campaign to collect food for distribution to those in need.
Working together we can stamp out hunger!
