In the lake area and all across the state, you’ll be getting something a little different in the mail next week. Keep an eye out for bags and envelopes for donations in the 26th annual National Association of Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Event. Cristal Backer’s with The Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri.
You’re asked to leave your non-perishable food items in the bags and put any monetary donations into those envelopes. Those will then be picked up next Saturday, May 12th.
Checks should be made out to “The Food Bank.” Those monetary donations will go a long way, too. Backer says a $10 donation will translate to the purchase and delivery of $210 worth of groceries.
