Donations at our local 2nd Harvest food bank are down.

In an effort to replenish the supply, letter carriers are collecting donations on Saturday for the annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. You're encouraged to leave bags of non-perishable food items at your mailbox for your letter carrier to deliver to 2nd Harvest.

This year, letter carriers will also be collecting monetary donations.

“Stamp Out Hunger has been a way for letter carriers to give back to the community,” said Mele Ball, NALC President Branch 1528. “With every birthday card, Mother’s Day packages and other items we deliver on our routes, we get to know the people and become part of the neighborhood. This is our way to help out those families in our community that might need a little extra help. So, we are trying something a little new this year. We will be delivering envelopes around the community to give everyone an easy way to contribute to the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. No stamp is required. If you would like to donate with a check, just put it in the envelope and we will get it out there. The second way is to scan the QR code and donate.”

How Can you help with the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive?

• Nearly every mailbox in the Tri-Cities is receiving an envelope in May that, if left for their mail carrier on May 13, will be delivered to Second Harvest without the need for postage. Mail your tax-deductible check, payable to Second Harvest, in the envelope.

• Make a secure, online donation by visiting or by scanning the QR code located inside the Second Harvest envelope.

• Interested in donating food? Please donate directly to your neighborhood food pantry. To find the pantry nearest you, visit
