Have you done your grocery shopping for the week yet? Some people don't have the option of buying whatever strikes their fancy as many of us do. Why not help out those who are having trouble by picking up a few extra things this week and participating in the 2016 Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on Saturday, May 14. This massive food drive is organized by the National Association of Letter Carriers and the U.S. Post Office. Non-perishable food items can be left in a bag next to your mailbox and your letter carrier will pick it up when he drops off your mail. Last year the drive collected 71 million pounds of food.
