The National Association of Letter Carriers will hold their annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive Saturday, May 11.

The event helps local families in need by generating donations for the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri.

On Saturday, letter carriers dropped off blue plastic bags to be used on the 11th as well as envelopes that can be used to donate cash to the food bank.

Participants are urged to donate non-perishable goods by placing them in the blue bags and setting them by your mailbox on Saturday. The bags will be collected and delivered to the local food bank, such as Open Door and Salvation Army.
