Food Drive will take place May 12

The National Association of Letter Carriers, Branch 385, Youngstown, will host the 2018 Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on May 12. Leave a nonperishable food donation in a bag by your mailbox May 13 and they will be delivered to local food pantries.

The need for donations is great. Currently, 49 million Americans — 1 in 6 — are unsure where the next meal will come from. Sixteen million children are hungry and approximately five million seniors over age 60 are food insecure, with many who live on fixed incomes often too embarrassed to ask for help.
