The second Saturday in May, letter carriers throughout northwest PA join the Second Harvest to Stamp Out Hunger! The community is asked to donate nonperishable donations in a sturdy bag and leave by their mailbox in the morning. Local letter carriers, volunteers or Boy Scouts will be collecting donations from homes and delivering them to the Second Harvest or Second Harvest member agencies in outlying areas. Contact Tori Pursell at 814-459-3663 x 104 or if you’re interested in volunteering at this event.
