On the second Saturday in May, letter carriers throughout northwest Pennsylvania join 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 and volunteers will be collecting donations from homes and delivering them to the Second Harvest or Second Harvest member agencies in outlying areas.

In order to aid the letter carrier’s, Second Harvest enlists the help of community volunteers for the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive each year.  For each of our drop-off sites Second Harvest needs teams of volunteers to drive around the surrounding area and collect the nonperishables from mailboxes.  Additionally, we need Site Helpers at each drop-off sites to aid Second Harvest staff members in loading the donated food onto our trucks.  If you’re interested in volunteering, please register at the link below.  If you have any questions about volunteering, contact Natalie Massing at (814) 459-3663 ext. 113 or at nmassing@nwpafoodbank.org.
