U.S. Postal Service mail carriers in Hawaii will be giving back to the community by collecting food for the needy during their annual food drive on Saturday, May 14. Hawaii residents are encouraged to support this effort by leaving non-perishable food items at their mail boxes on that day. More than 175,000 mail carriers across the nation will lead the Postal Service’s effort to “Stamp Out Hunger” by collecting food donations on May 14 in the 24th annual National Association of Letter Carriers’ Food Drive.
People should place their donations at or inside their mail boxes early Saturday, May 14. They can also leave a note in their mail boxes requesting their mail carriers pick up their food from a nearby spot, like a covered garage or doorway. If they forget to leave their food out or want to make their donation prior to May 14, they can drop off their food at their local post office.
