NOTE: This posting is from 2010:

On Saturday, May 8th, members of the National Association of Letter Carriers will be holding “Stamp Out Hunger,” known as the “nation’s largest single-day food drive,” when residents are asked to leave bags of non-perishable food items next to their mailboxes.

Letter carriers will pick these up on Saturday, then deliver them to local food banks.

This is an easy way to donate food and help your hungry neighbors, and we here at The B-Town Blog encourage all our Readers to participate.

Here are the details:
