Stamp out Hunger Part II

This past Saturday, May 10th, HSP had a wonderful time participating in the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) national food drive, “Stamp out Hunger,” to combat hunger throughout the country. As a recipient of this food drive, the Humanitarian Service Project would like to thank everyone who participated in the food drive, from the volunteers who came to our center to unload and sort food to the volunteers who delivered the food from the post offices. We would also like to especially thank the mail carriers and community contributors without whom the food drive would not have been possible. The food will reach local seniors and families in need through our Senior Citizen Project and Feed the Kids program.

            Today, we also have a volunteer group from our friends at Sabre Holdings, who are graciously giving four hours of their time to help us sort food from the event. Sabre volunteered for the first time last spring and we’re excited to be hosting them again. We are grateful to these 8 volunteers from Sabre for giving their time to help us organize the food that we received from Stamp out Hunger. Many thanks to those who have participated in making a difference in the fight against food insecurity.
