The CFR gets to help “Stamp Out Hunger” once again thanks to the Support of the Community

For the past 15 years, The Center for Family Resources has partnered with the West Side Carrier Annex Post Office in support of “Stamp Out Hunger”, the largest one-day food drive in the nation, according to the United States Postal Service.

Following the slogan, “Fill a Bag. Help Feed Families”, community members came together and donated an incredible amount of non-perishable food items to then be sorted out by volunteers.

On Saturday, May 11, 18 volunteers from TruTech and True Glory Hair helped to unload, sort, and re-load much needed food items. The following Monday, May 13, 9 volunteers from InfoMart and UPS helped unload 289 bins, weigh each bin, and then organize them for dating and sorting.

Collectively, between community donations and pick-ups by letter carriers, volunteers unloaded, sorted, and re-loaded 8,797 pounds of food. The generous food donations will help to support the Center for Family Resources’ on-site food pantry and feed families in need.
