On Saturday, the local representatives of the United States Postal Service will aim to “Stamp Out Hunger” as part of the national annual drive to collect non-perishable food items left in mailboxes and post offices.

Locally, members of the National Association of Letter Carriers and of the National Rural Letter Carriers Association will be collecting food, and a hamper will be set up in the lobby of the Post Office in town, as well.

Last year, 4,000 pounds of food was collected in the local drive, and all the food collected here stays in the community, being delivered to local food banks.
