Woodbury postal carriers will collect nonperishable food donations left by town residents at mailboxes for pickup during deliveries on Saturday, May 9,to replenish supplies of staple food and household products at the Woodbury Food Bank.
The food drive collection by Woodbury carriers on all town postal routes will be conducted as part of the 2015 Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive, an annual campaign sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers. Bags or boxes of donated goods may be placed at home mail delivery locations for pickup, or may be brought to the Woodbury Post Office by May 9. All donations will be delivered by postal employees to the Woodbury Food Bank, which currently provides emergency food assistance to more than 120 low-income families residing in the town of Woodbury.
The Woodbury Food Bank is operated by the Community Services Council of Woodbury, an independent nonprofit agency that provides food, fuel and crisis assistance to town residents in financial need. Council President Bob Taylor noted the urgency for replenishment of food bank stocks is especially great entering the summer months, and expressed gratitude to Woodbury Post Office carriers and supervisors for their continuing commitment each year to participate in the Stamp Out Hunger campaign.
