Whidbey stops hunger at the mail box today

Whidbey Island post offices sponsor their “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive Saturday, May 11.

Island residents are encouraged to leave donations of nonperishable food items in their mailboxes.

Mail carriers will pick up all donations and delivering them to local food banks.

Post office box customers can deliver their donations directly to a collection bin inside their local post office.

Donations from South Whidbey will go to Good Cheer. Oak Harbor will be delivered to Help House. Donations made in Coupeville and Greenbank go to Gifts from the Heart.

The postal service’s national food drive is important to local food banks as donations decline significantly during summer.
