Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is Saturday

GREEN BAY – The U.S. Postal Service is asking for help fighting hunger.

The 22nd annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is Saturday.

Postal workers will pick up non-perishable food donations left near people’s mailboxes.

Just around this area, 1.3 million pounds of food have been collected for 23 local pantries over the past 21 years.

Postal workers say rain or shine, they will be doing what they can for those in need.

“You know, you get a lot of satisfaction because you do a lot of good for the people that are unfortunate and in the community that they might not have jobs or there’s a lot of senior people out there that can’t put food on the table because of the high costs today,” said Tim Voelker, postal carrier.

The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is billed as the largest one-day food drive in the country.

If you miss the collection on Saturday, Voelker says postal workers will still pick up donations left at the mailbox Monday and Tuesday.
