SAN ANGELO – Agencies consisting of the National Association of Letter Carriers, the United Way of the Concho Valley, and the Concho Valley Regional Food Bank with ground support from the U.S. Postal Services have combined forces for the 25th Anniversary STAMP OUT HUNGER FOOD DRIVE. 

Mr. Duke, CVRFB Executive Director, and 25-year volunteer, Louis Putzel, prepping and preparing for Saturday's busy  event. 

Mr. Greg Duke, Executive Director for the Concho Valley Food Bank, stated that while the letter carriers will pick up the food sacks on Saturday, May 13, officially those food bags will be dropped off by the letter carriers on Wednesday, May 11 during their mail delivery run.

“However, these food sacks will not go out to businesses or apartment complexes,” said Duke.

If a business or apartment complex decides to participate, they can take a generic plastic sack, paper sack or small box for canned foods and drop them off instead at CVRFB, located at 1313 South Hill Street.

“You can also take the food donation to the Southwest Post Office on Loop 306, or the San Angelo Post Office location on Abe Street. 

Duke concluded, saying that when the letter carriers drop off the mail on Saturday, people can either make a hand-to-hand exchange of food sack for mail or leave the good sack by the mail box.

The annual STAMP OUT HUNGER Food Drive will benefit the CVRFB.
