Hello Friends of the Food Bank:
The long, hot summer once again approaches and St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance is facing a difficult task. Our food reserves are down nearly 30 percent over this time last year.
Each summer, demand for food rises while donations tend to fall so we are very concerned about our ability to help all those in need. I am asking for your help – and there is an easy and convenient way to do that this weekend
The National Association of Letter Carriers will be conducting its 20th annual “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive on Saturday May 12th – and the drive will be held at your house!
This is a great time to clean out your pantry at home and donate to without leaving your driveway. Simply fill a bag or bags (the letter carriers will even leave one in your mailbox in the days leading up to the drive) with your donation by your mailbox before your letter carrier makes his rounds on Saturday morning.
Your letter carrier will do the rest. It’s an easy and effective way to help neighbors in need.
St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance counts on this, the largest single-day food drive in the United States, to fill our emergency food boxes all summer. That is true more this year than ever. Please give what you can and remember to help Stamp Out Hunger on Saturday, May 12.
President & CEO, St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance
