SETX participates in the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

The Southeast Texas Food Bank would like to thank all of those in our community who donated to the 2013 Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. The National Association of Letter Carriers and local postal carriers worked diligently this past Saturday to collect over 50,000 pounds of food to place directly into the hands of those in need in Southeast Texas.

The drive kicked off Friday May 10, with an opening day event at The Walden Road USPS location. The tremendous volunteer efforts of the USPS letter carriers in Southeast Texas contributed to the collection, and would not have been possible without their time. More information is available at stampouthunger.info.

Did you know that a $10 donation can provide up to 30 meals for desperate people in your community? By making a donation, you are helping to ensure that hungry children in Southeast Texas are adequately nourished, that none of our senior citizens are forced to chose between medicine and food, and that every family facing a crisis can at least have the assurance of food on the table.

Your gift goes a long, long way!
