Postal Food Drive,
Stamp Out Hunger:
Saturday, May 9th, is the US Postal
Service Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. As part of this drive, the
local Postal Services donate food that they collect along their
routes to the Open Doors Food Pantry. Participating US Postal
Service Office across the nation will be distributing food bags
with a post card on mail boxes during the week of May 4th. On
May 9th, residents will place the food bags by their mail boxes
and the postal carries will pick up the food and return it to
the post office. The food will then be loaded on trucks and delivered
to Open Doors to be unloaded by volunteers. The amount of food
varies from year to year, however we expect around 35,000 pounds
of food on May 9th. We look forward to again working with the
US Postal Service on this event on May 9th.
Regarding this event, there are may opportunities to volunteer
by helping the day of the event, collecting and unloading food,
and then for weeks after this event, sorting and dating food.
Once again, this year Chad Huff, with CSI Signs, has graciously
offered to let Open Doors use a portion of their CSI shop to unload
and sort food that Open Doors will receive from the Postal Food
Drive on Saturday May 9th. This property is located at 2230 E.
186th Street, on the north side of 186th Street between East Street
and Grassy Branch Road (across from Heartland Growers). The newer
metal shop building is located behind the house, the garage and
the old barn. Parking is in the back by the newer metal building.
Volunteer hours are from 3pm to 6pm or until we have the last
This is a great family, church, or organization group; such as
Lions Club, Rotary, Boy, Scouts, Girls Scouts, etc..., to volunteers
and teach the principles of service in the community to our youth.
