Letter carriers on Kauaʻi to collect food May 13 for Stamp Out Hunger drive
The National Association of Letter Carriers will conduct its 31st annual Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on May 13.
Stamp Out Hunger provides an easy way to donate food to local residents in need. Anyone interested in helping can:
- Make a monetary donation online at HawaiiFoodbank.org/NALC.
- Text NALC to 71777 to donate.
- Participate in the physical food drive by leaving a bag of nonperishable food next to their mailbox before the time of mail delivery on May 13.
The letter carriers will collect the food donations along their postal routes. The food will be distributed to Hawai‘i Foodbank Kaua‘i, Food Basket on the Big Island, Hawaiʻi Foodbank on O‘ahu and Maui Food Bank.
“This annual food drive demonstrates how the Postal Service goes beyond just delivering the mail to helping those in our communities who are less fortunate,” said Adele Yoshikawa, letter carrier at the Pearl City Post Office and spokesperson for Stamp Out Hunger. “By making a donation online, the Foodbank can stretch our dollars further. Just $25 can help provide food for more than 50 meals.”
Those interested in volunteering for the event can email [email protected] for more information.
