Stamp out hunger with mail carrier food drive

Written by 

Mail carriers in Haywood County will collected non-perishable food items for the National Letter Carriers’ “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive on Saturday, May 11.

Place canned goods or other non-perishable items in your mailbox before the mail carrier stops by to pick your mail on that Saturday. People may also leave donations at the post office. Do not include any items in glass.

All food gathered will go to Haywood Christian Ministry, the Open Door, Canton Community Kitchen, and the Salvation Army. Those agencies will welcome volunteers to unload food donations at each location beginning at 1 p.m. on May 11. 

Last year, nearly 41,000 pounds of food was gathered in Haywood County. 

The mail carrier food drive is held nationwide that day.
