PORTER COUNTY | On Saturday, letter carriers in Portage and other cities and towns across America will achieve much more than delivering mail as they walk and drive along their routes.
They will be collecting donations for the National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp out Hunger Food Drive, the largest one-day food drive in the world.
In the past 20 years, their efforts have resulted in the delivery of more than 1.3 billion pounds of donations to community food banks and pantries. Included in this amount is the 170,000 pounds that have been shared by two local pantries.
To participate, leave nonperishable food items attached to or beneath their mailboxes. Please do not include items that have expired or are in glass containers.
