{ Stamp Out Hunger! - May 11, 2013 }

Did you know that 1 in 6 Americans are facing hunger right now? And that more than 6 million Americans are fed by food banks each week?* 

Would you like to help those who are in need?

I hope that you will join me in participating in the 'Stamp Out Hunger!' event that occurs this Saturday - May 11, 2013. 

It is so easy to just collect a few items for donation. Here's how you can help:
  • Pick up a few or several non-perishable items at your grocery store. Note that items that need to be put in the refrigerator, are contained in glass or are expired CANNOT be included. 
  • Items that can be donated include: cereal, canned goods (i.e., soup, Chef Boyardee, tuna, etc.), rice, bottled juice (no glass!), canned vegetables, pasta, Goldfish, etc.
  • Simply place your items in a plastic or paper grocery bag next to your mailbox and your letter carrier will pick them up to be delivered to a local food bank! It's that easy.
Please check your local grocery ad to see what is on sale this week and be sure to use coupons when you go shopping. I have several items that I plan on getting and some are even FREE after coupons! If you have a stockpile you may be able to pull some items from there.

Remember - it does not have to be seven bags full of items...even if you only donate three cans of soup you are still helping out!
