Stamp out hunger

Some local participants of the annual “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive, held May 11 by the National Association of Letter Carriers and the National Rural Letter Carriers Association, pose together. Locally, carriers collected 5,500 pounds of food, participant Shawn Munn said, while more than 74 million pounds were collected nationwide. “We want to thank all the customers for their contributions to our local food pantries,” Munn said.
