Letter carriers help stamp out hunger

"Stamp Out Hunger" drive to be held this weekend through the area

The National Association of Letter Carriers will be having their annual food drive on Saturday, May 12. This Saturday marks the 20th anniversary of the Stamp Out Hunger food drive.
"For two decades now, our annual national drive has proved critical in helping millions of American families - our customers - who are struggling to make ends meet during this continuing recession. Each year, the second Saturday in May is a day when all citizens have an opportunity, with the help of their letter carrier, to easily donate food to needy families in their community," said NALC President Frederic Rolando.
Residents in Sweetwater can leave non-perishable food items in their mail boxes to be picked up by their mail carriers. Carriers will then deliver the food items to local food banks such as the Nolan County Welfare Office, First United Methodist Church and Lamar Street Baptist Church.
The Sweetwater Reporter will have a drop off box at the front office for anyone wishing to bring food items.
