The 25th Annual NALC Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive 2017 in Venice Florida

  

It is that time of the year again. Are you ready to fill a bag and help feed the local needy families?

The America Letter Carriers are getting ready for this important event in the community. There are leaving flyers and bags in your mail box for you to spread the news, donate and share with others.

Last year in total we had 150 local volunteers of all ages in the Venice Florida area who helped pick up donated food from homes, unload 121 full carts (536lbs), 57 half load carts (268lbs) and 12 white tubs (53lbs) from their cars, minivans, suvs and trucks to the collection center, and separate food by cans, dry food and jars into boxes. Then distributed to 5 local food pantries: Community Action Ministry from Trinity Presbyterian Church, House of Truth, Center of Hope, Venice Church of the Nazarene Manna Ministry and Salvation Army.
