Ohio mail carriers working to "Stamp Out" hunger

Written by 

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohioans across the state can help out the hungry this weekend without leaving the front porch or driveway.

As part of the 22nd annual "Stamp Out Hunger" food drive, Ohio letter-carriers will collect nonperishable foods from customers along their routes, to be sorted by volunteers and delivered to local food pantries. Richard Bilski with the National Association of Letter Carriers in Westlake says they enjoy the opportunity to help those in need. And he encourages everyone who can to help out:

He says the response from most neighborhoods is great and last year, more than 74 million pounds of food was collected nationally. To participate, just leave a bag or box of nonperishable foods, such as pasta or canned soup, next to your mailbox before your regular mail delivery time this Saturday, May 10th.
