Letter Carrier's Food Drive - Saturday, May 9, 2015


Letter Carriers and volunteers collected 37,741 pounds on food in Monroe County during the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on Saturday, May 9 and the weeks following. This was an almost 29 percent increase from the amount of food we collected last year, which put us back even with what we have collected in recent years.

“Saturday was a great day. We’re back up to the level we were seeing before last year and that’s going to help us a lot.  We really appreciate the support of all those in the community who donated and of our letter carrier partners for doing the heavy lifting to bring in more than 18 tons of food,” said HHFB Executive Director Julio Alonso.

Many thanks to all of the volunteers who have helped us sort the food in May and June. Their hard work helped us distribute the food to our member agecnies quickly.
