Last Saturday local postal letter carriers asked their neighbors in Newport, Lincoln City and Toledo to contribute non-perishable food items to their local emergency food pantries for their annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive. And Newport responded by donating more than one and a half tons for the Newport Food Pantry!
Now in it’s 22nd year, the annual drive helps stocks pantry shelves right before the busy summer season. Once again Newport letter carrier Ron Flowers headed up the Newport drive. And Pepsi & Bigfoot Beverages’ Joe Arnsdorf graciously picked up the racks of donated food from the Newport Post office and delivered them to the Pantry.
The staff, volunteers and Board of Directors of the Newport Food Pantry wishes to thank all the Newport postal carriers and everyone who donated food items for their awesome contribution in our fight against hunger in our community.
