Letter carriers food drive set for May 13

On Saturday, May 13, the National Association of Letter Carriers will host its 25th annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive. The National Association of Letter Carriers, Branch #495 will be collecting non-perishable food items for distribution to food shelves in our Rutland County communities.

Local letter carriers will pick it up and deliver it to the food shelves. Last year, more than 23,000 pounds of food were collected to provide thousands of meals to residents in need throughout our local communities

“We are very grateful to the Rutland County community for the continued generous support of this annual food drive — which helps to stock our local food shelves heading into the summer months, when children are out of school and families need more support,” said Chris Greeno, organizer of the local Letter Carriers’ Food Drive.

For more information about the letter carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger food drive, contact the United Way of Rutland County at 802-773-7477.
