A Drive to Provide!
Saturday, May 13, 2017 marks the 25th Annual Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive and the largest food drive of the year benefiting the Arvada Community Foods Bank (Community Table).
Each May, the National Association of Letter Carriers local membership in Arvada and Wheat Ridge designate all collected food to Community Table. This food is essential to Community Table’s mission to provide food to those in need during the summer months when food donations are at their lowest.
What to do, what to do? It’s easy! Pick up some extra nonperishable groceries ahead of time. Five to ten pounds or more per household would be fantastic. Several days before Saturday, May 13th, your letter carrier will leave a blue plastic bag in or by your mailbox. Place the bag, filled with food donation by your mailbox no later than 9:00 a.m. on Saturday morning. Your letter carrier or an Community Table volunteer will pick them up and deliver them to the Food Bank.
Once again, we are hoping to collect 80,000 to 100,000 of food in just 8 hours. Help us reach our goal!
