You've got a big opportunity this weekend to help feed hungry people in our local community. But you'll have to get ready now!

Saturday, May 10th, letter carriers want you to fill one or more bags with non-perishable, non-expired food items. Then, all you have to do is set your food items by your mail box. Then, letter carriers and volunteers will do the rest.

Last year over 189,000 pounds of food was collected locally alone. You'll want to start buying, or gathering that food now. Make sure to have the filled bags by your mailbox by 9 o'clock Saturday morning.  Scott Dulas, the President of the Letter Carriers Branch 114, tells us that bags of food will also be picked up Monday morning.
