Postal Workers “Stamp Out Hunger”
Written by Andrew-Rossi on May 12, 2017
Local postal workers will be picking up more than mail this Saturday – they’ll be helping to stamp out hunger.
This year is the 25th year that the Cody post office has been participating in the National Association of Letter Carrier’s Stamp Out Hunger drive, which will provide food for local families. Residents are asked to donate healthy, non-perishable food items or paper products, which will be donated to local food banks.
Jody Booth is a local mail carrier who coordinates Cody’s drive. She says that the drive will happen in two sections tomorrow – the first donations of the day will be picked up by the Manna House, and then the afternoon collections will go to the Cody Cupboard.
Residents can either place their food items to donate by their mailboxes, or place them in a donation box at the Post Office.
Booth adds that they seem to receive more donations every year, and expressed gratitude to the community for their generosity.
