For the 22nd Year the Annual National Association of Letter Carriers’ “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive Will Benefit Local Communities
For the 22nd consecutive year the National Association of Letter Carriers and the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona will team up to collect donations on Saturday, May 10, 2013 for the annual “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive. This is Southern Arizona’s largest single day food drive.
To help “Stamp Out Hunger” in Southern Arizona, residents are asked leave a bag of non-perishable food, such as canned meats, canned vegetables, canned soups, cereal, peanut butter, canned fruit or canned tomato products next to their mail box before the time of their mail delivery on Saturday, May 10th. Food should be in non-breakable containers. Letter carriers and volunteers will collect the food donations and forward them to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.
We are also pleased to accept monetary donations for this event. For more information, please contact the NALC Branch #704 at (520) 323-2117 or Jack Parris at (520) 882-3287.

This appliqued quilt was hand quilted by an Amish woman from Pennsylvania Dutch Country. This queen-sized quilt is perfect for any bedroom in your home.
Proceeds from last year’s quilt raffle totaled over $100,000 which allowed us to provide enough groceries for over 429,000 meals! Hungry families will be able to sit down for a healthy meal because of your gift.
There is a suggested minimum donation of $10.00 per ticket. Your donation is fully tax deductible. To participate please call (520) 622-0525 or click here to purchase raffle tickets online.
