Looking for a meaningful way to take action and a great opportunity to get involved? Food drives and fund drives raise awareness of hunger in the community, collect food for people in need, and play an essential role in the fight against hunger. Whether it’s your child’s school, your family’s church, your place of employment, your local girl scout troupe, or any other caring group, every item and dollar you donate to food drives makes a difference to a hungry person. Watch for food drives with the U.S. Postal Service, schools, supermarkets and other organizations in your area.
Keep an eye out for the annual National Association of Letter Carriers’ food drive – each second Saturday in May, your postal carrier will pick up food donations right from your mailbox. In 2011, this event added more than 265,000 pounds of food to shelves of hungry families in Pierce County.
