Letter carriers to collect food to stamp out hunger

The National Association of Letter Carriers’ annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive is coming Saturday, May 11. This event is the largest one-day food collection in the nation. Over 1,500 branches throughout the United States will collect non-perishable donations along their postal routes.

Help support this year’s drive by placing bags filled with nonperishable food items next to your mailbox by 10 a.m. on May 11. Items in high need are peanut butter, pancake mix, canned meats and stews. Collected goods from the Maple Valley and Ravensdale Post Offices will benefit Maple Valley Food Bank and Emergency Services. Last year, they received over 9000 pounds of food.
