Postal workers help fight hunger

Residents are invited to “stamp out hunger” by leaving a bag of nonperishable food near their mailboxes Saturday.

U.S. Postal Service workers will pick up the food and deliver it to a local food bank. Nonperishable items include peanut butter, canned meats, vegetables, fruit, juice or soup, boxed goods and pasta or rice.

Abbett Elementary School students donated more than 2,200 pounds of nonperishable items toward the city’s total. This is the 21st year for the program.
