Your local mail carrier will be doing more than give you your mail the next few weeks. The Taylorville Post Office is once again participating in the National Association of Letter Carriers’ “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive. This is the 25th year the event has been held nationwide.
Eric Martin is the Supervisor of Customer Service at the Taylorville Post Office. He says the annual food drive has raised billions of pounds of food for those in need over the past 24 years.
Martin says you don’t need to leave your home to donate to the cause.
Martin says that letter carriers will also be looking for donation bags leading up to the collection day on May 13th. He says any food Taylorville residents donate will stay in the community to help those in need.
