You don’t have to go any further than your mailbox to help Golden residents in need. The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) holds its annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive on Saturday, May 12 from 3 to 8 p.m.
About a week prior to the food drive, blue bags will be delivered to most Golden neighborhoods. Just put any non-perishable food you are able to donate in the blue bag and set it next to your mailbox on the morning of May 12. If you do not receive a blue bag, you can still put your donated items in any sort of bag by your mailbox. Postal carriers will collect the food and then volunteers will sort and deliver the food to local food banks. What you donate in Golden stays in Golden. Residents donated more than 26,000 pounds of food in 2017!
Volunteers are also needed to help sort and shelf the donated food items. Last year there were 89 community volunteers and six members of the Lions Club who worked the drive. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Mindy Liao at email@example.com or call 517-449-5956.
