Help the Hungry Tomorrow!

By RACHEL BROCKWAY, Class 23
Scottsdale Leadership Marketing and Resource Development Manager

According to the USDA, over 49 million Americans are at risk of hunger. Saturday, May 8th is Stamp Out Hunger Day 2010!

All you need to do is place non-perishable food products in a bag and leave them by your mailbox tomorrow! That is all! Your letter carrier will pick up and deliver the food to local food banks! The three valley food banks benefiting will be St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, St. Vincent de Paul and the United Food Bank.

If you don’t have time to put together a few cans of food for tomorrow morning, Scottsdale has a local food bank, Vista del Camino in south Scottsdale that will always accept food items. Vista del Camino provides a variety of services to Scottsdale residents to prevent homelessness, meet the basic needs of individuals and families in crisis, relieve economic and emotional stress and assist individuals to maintain self-sufficiency.

  1. Good afternoon,

    Just a quick follow up to this blog. The AZ chapter of the National Association of Letter Carriers collected more than 1 million pounds of food!
