The National Association of Letter Carriers will hold its food drive on Saturday, May 9.
Lancaster postal employees will again help Stamp Out Hunger! across America with your help.
To help Stamp Out Hunger! in Lancaster this year, simply leave a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods, such as canned soup, canned vegetables, pasta, rice or cereal next to your mailbox prior to the time of regular mail delivery on May 9. Food items should be in non-breakable containers, such as boxes and cans. Local letter and rural carriers will then collect donations from homes and deliver them to HOPE in Lancaster.
United Way of Lancaster County will be coordinating community volunteers for the food drive. Last year Lancaster collected over 14,000 pounds of food which benefited HOPE in Lancaster’s food pantry. Volunteers are needed on Saturday, May 9 from 12:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Lancaster Post Office. To volunteer or for additional information, please contact United Way of Lancaster County at 283-8923 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
