Last Saturday, dozens of volunteers of all ages gathered in Operation Hope’s parking lot to set up, sort, store and clean up a large part of No the 27,555 pounds, or 13.78 tons, of non perishable donations collected from the annual Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive! 📫 We emptied one full pod and about half the other pod. Lots left to go! We only had to stop because we ran out of storage crates!
Our volunteers worked hard non-stop and always with a smile. Thank you for making our job organizing these donations in the pantry so much easier! 😊🙏🏽
Those bright yellow, hard-to-miss bags this year played a huge part in the drive’s success. Thanks again to the 3 bag sponsors – Fairfield Motoworks, Pizza Mediterranean and Trumbull BMX💛💛💛 And a huge thank you to Mike Capodicci and his team of Fairfield & Southport letter carriers, to the Town of Fairfield and to all of YOU who generously left donations by your mailbox.
Mark your calendar for the next annual Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on May 10, 2025! 📅
