Mail carriers working to ‘Stamp Out Hunger’
Mail carriers usually deliver and pick up packages, but they will pick up special deliveries this weekend to help those in need.
Greenville’s postal service will join postal services across the nation in conducting the 23rd annual Letter Carrier’s Food Drive on Saturday. Customers are asked to place a sturdy bag of non-perishable food items next to their mailboxes or in their mailboxes. The food collected locally will be donated to the Selma Area Food Bank. The National Association of Letter Carriers and the United States Postal Service will sponsor the food drive.
Nationally, a whopping total of about 70 million pounds of food items was collected last year.
Last year letter carriers in the Camellia City helped collect food that was donated to local food banks, such as St. Thomas Episcopal Church’s food pantry.
