U.S. Post Office Holds 'Stamp Out Hunger' Drive

Posted: Updated:

KALISPELL - The U.S. Postal Service is holding its nation-wide Annual 'Stamp Out Hunger' food drive this weekend.

On Saturday, mail carriers will collect non-perishable or canned foods from residents to support area food banks.

Letter Carrier Kari Wiley said collecting donations will help restock food pantries after their busy holiday season.

"Letter carriers walk through communities everyday and see the need first hand, and this time of year is particularly important because food banks have depleted their inventory from the holiday season donations and now schools are not in session so the children aren't able to take advantage of school lunches,"  Wiley said.

Mail carriers and volunteers will begin collecting food items Saturday morning at 9 a.m.
