'Stamp Out Hunger' set

Sunday, May 6, 2012

Postal carriers across the nation will take part in the annual National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) "Stamp Out Hunger" food drive Saturday, May 12.

In Clay County, those interested in donating food are asked to put out non-perishable food donations for the letter carriers, who will in turn take it to area food pantries.

The carriers participating in Clay County will be wearing royal blue shirts with white print to be easily identified.

Any donations coming back to the Brazil Post Office will go to the Clay County Emergency Food Pantry and to the Clay County Senior Citizen's Center.

Food dropped off by individuals at the post offices in Staunton, Harmony, Knightsville and Center Point will go to food pantries in those communities.

In addition, after the Center Point Post Office closes, those wishing to drop off donations may do so at the Center Point Hardware Store.

Food drop-off sites have also be designated at Kroger, Page's, Jack's Fine Foods, Mane Attraction, Fun Time Scuba and the back of the Brazil Post Office.

Since its birth 20 years ago, "Stamp Out Hunger" has collected more than one billion pounds of donations for community food pantries, including 70.2 million pounds in 2011.

The Campbell Soup Company will also earmark an additional one million pounds of canned food to the drive.
