DuBois, PA – The shelves at the DuBois Ministerial Food Pantry will be filled for a little while longer... thanks to the post office workers, the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive, and you!
Brad Waddell, the food drive coordinator for the DuBois Post Office, wants to thank everyone who participated.
to listen to an interview with Brad Waddell about the results of the 2017 Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.
Last Saturday, people throughout the community put bags of nonperishable food items out by their mailboxes to donate to the food pantry. Letter carriers and volunteers then went around to collect the food. It’s an annual national food drive through the US Postal Service.
Last year, the Stamp Out Hunger food drive brought in more than 4,000 pounds of food for the local food bank. This year, we’ve beat that number… 5,610 pounds of food was collected this year.
All the food donated in the DuBois area will go to the DuBois Ministerial Food Bank, and the donations will be used by local people who need a little extra help.
