Higdon added the national Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is timely.

To donate, you should leave non-perishable food items in a bag near your mailbox Saturday before your letter carrier arrives.

The National Association of Letter Carriers will hold its 26th annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive this Saturday, May 12.

"Every year we try to up it a little bit and get our donations a little bit higher", Hoffman agreed.

"(The) drive is extremely important to us because it carries us through the summer", she said.

The drive gathered more than 1 million pounds of food in the area past year, enough for 830,000 meals, Burrell said. "We have volunteers in different neighborhood, but mailmen are picking up food for us too", he says.

78-Foot Wave Is the Largest Ever Recorded in Southern Hemisphere
This week's storm featured a significant wave height of almost 15 meters, or 49 feet, another Southern Hemisphere record. According to Durrant, the lack of land-based obstacles in the Southern Ocean makes it easier for a storm to move.


"Spread the word, and help us stamp out hunger", said Maness. "Last year we received almost 33,000 pounds".

Our community has shown many times that it is willing to help out when necessary. A revamped drive was organized for May 15, 1993, with a goal of having at least one NALC branch in each of the 50 states participating.

Chad Higdon, Second Harvest CEO, assured the food collected will stay in the community where it is collected.

This is such an easy way to donate some of your non-perishable food overstock to folks who could really use the help!

The collaboration between the scouts and the letter carriers has been going on for years, Pacheco said.
