Here’s How to Help El Paso Letter Carriers ‘Stamp Out Hunger’ on Saturday
Letter Carriers all across El Paso will be participating in the U.S. Postal Service's Stamp Out Hunger food drive this Saturday.
Stamp Out Hunger is the largest, single-day food drive in El Paso, and doing your part couldn’t be easier.
How to Help Stamp Out Hunger
Simply fill up the food drive bag that was placed in your mailbox with non-perishable food items and place it by your mailbox before your letter carrier’s normal pick-up time this Saturday, May 14. Your letter carrier will do the rest.
If you didn't receive a food drive bag or you misplaced it, no problem. Any sturdy bag or box will do.
Non-perishable food items that are always needed include canned vegetables and fruits, canned meats and soups, packaged cereals, pasta, peanut butter, canned tuna, and packaged staples such as rice, beans, and oatmeal.
Don't have but a can or two to spare? Again, not a problem. They appreciate anything you can do to help feed our community.
El Pasoans Fighting Hunger
All food donations will benefit El Paso-area food banks and pantries such as El Pasoans Fighting Hunger.
Because the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank is the distribution center for many food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters in our area they require an enormous amount of donated goods.
And it's not just food insecure individuals in our city they help feed, but those in need in our neighboring Culberson and Hudspeth Counties as well.
The thought of anyone having to go hungry breaks my heart. I plan to do my part. I hope you can too.
