Post office stamping out hunger

Published 9:33 am Friday, May 7, 2010

Marengo County residents will have a special chance to help feed the hungry Saturday, while paying their power bill or mailing a late Mother’s Day card.

Local postal carriers will be picking up canned food Saturday, May 8. The drive is an annual event.

Non-perishable food, such as dry or canned goods, may be left in mailboxes for carriers to pick up.

All food will be kept local and donated locally.

More than a billon pounds of food have been collected since the carriers started the drive around 15 years ago.
