On Saturday May 9th, local letter carriers in Toledo, Newport, and Lincoln City will be participating in this year’s “Stamp Out Hunger” National Food Drive, the largest one-day Food drive in the nation. City Carriers, rural carriers, and highway contract carriers, will be collecting non-perishable foods along their route and delivering them to their respective Food Share, and food pantries.
To participate, customers are encouraged to place non-perishable food donations, (such as tuna fish, soups, cereals, canned vegetables, peanut butter, no Glass,) by their mailboxes on Saturday, May 9th. Earlier in the week, carriers will deliver plastic bags for use in the drive. Use these bags or one of your own. Post Office Lobbies, and local businesses may be set up for donations.
