Letter carriers across the United States hope folks will leave non-perishable food items by their mailboxes Saturday morning, May 12.
Tomorrow is the 26’th annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. This time of year, most food banks run low on donations received during the holidays.
In Texarkana, donated items are given to Harvest Regional Food Bank, The Salvation Army, Randy Sam’s Outreach Shelter and Mission Texarkana.
Harvest Regional Food Bank Director Camille Wrinkle said canned goods are always needed. She said, “Canned vegetables, cereals, meals like the skillet meals are always great because they’re just great for families to be able to make a whole meal out of one box.”
Organizers said folks should have the food by their mailboxes by 9am Saturday, rain or shine.
