Whidbey Island Post Offices will be sponsoring its “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive Saturday, May 11.
Residents are encouraged to leave donations of non-perishable food in their mailboxes by 8 a.m. Saturday. Mail carriers will pick up the donation and return it to your local food bank. P.O. box customers can drop their donations in collection bins placed at their local post office.
Donations from Coupeville and Greenbank will go to Gifts from the Heart, donations from Oak Harbor will go to North Whidbey Help House and donations on South Whidbey Island will go to Good Cheer food bank.
The national “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive takes place during a critical time for food banks. The amount of donations typically decline drastically during the summer months.
