Stamp Out Hunger 2015

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

Day of Caring 2015

Our DAY OF CARING is where we reach out to our partner agencies to see if they or their clients have a need that we can get volunteers for. Most of the request are for painting a room, washing windows, cleaning a car, cutting grass, landscape beautification, book drives, etc. The person making the request is responsible for supplying all materials necessary for the volunteer to complete the project. INDIVIDUALS CAN ONLY SUBMIT A PROJECT REQUEST FORM THROUGH ONE OF OUR PARTNER AGENCIES, this is not open to the general public.

We in turn find volunteers to adopt the projects that have been requested. If you are interested in helping with this DAY OF CARING. Please let us know. We invite everyone that would like to volunteer. This is the 4th year now that we've hosted the DAY OF CARING and everyone receives a blessing from it. You can form a volunteer team with your work group, church group, friends or family.
