Stamping Out Hunger

HARLINGEN – Letter carriers will be hauling more than mail and packages Saturday.

They will be picking up nonperishable food items while out on their regular routes.

The 24th annual Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is set around the country.

Harlingen’s post office will participate and the Harlingen Neighborhood Food Pantry will benefit from the always successful drive.

People are encouraged to leave a bag next to their mailboxes before regular mail delivery Saturday, containing nonperishable foods such as canned soup, canned vegetables, pasta, peanut butter, rice, cereal and canned meats

Stamp Out Hunger is the nation’s largest one-day food drive. It provides letter carriers, postal employees and volunteers the opportunity to come together to conduct the drive in their local communities.
