Project Salina - May 2018

Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

National Association of Letter Carriers

May is the time when businesses encourage
their employees to participate in collecting
food for five local agencies to help the hungry.
Ashby House, Salvation Army,
Salina Rescue Mission, DVACK and
the Salina Emergency Aid/ Food Bank
all benefit from your generosity.​​
Thank you for helping the letter carriers "Stamp Out Hunger"
in our community this year. The 26th annual food drive event
was May 12, 2018.  Nearly 28,000 pounds of food was collected.
Many volunteers helped by driving trucks to pick up donations,
and unloading and processing donations at the
Emergency Aid / Food Bank. For information about next year's event

This year's event will be held October 21, 2018 at First Covenant Church.
We look forward to many of you joining us for another successful event!
