Downtown Needles, CA: Working together to help feed the community during the 26th Annual National Association of Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.

The National Association of Letter Carriers held across the United States of America their 26th Annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on Saturday, May 12th, 2018.

People donated to the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive by placing a box or can of non-perishable food next to your mailbox before your letter carrier delivers mail.

ZachNews Photojournalist Zachary A. Lopez was at the United States Postal Service Office in Downtown Needles, California as letter carriers met with volunteers with the local food pantry at St. Vincent de Paul Society to help move boxes and bags of food donated by the community.

Both the letter carriers and volunteers worked together to load all of the donated food onto the pickup truck.

The donated food was than dropped off at the St. Vincent de Paul’s Thrift Shop where the volunteers unloaded the donated food, to be later sorted out and prepared inside the food pantry to be later given out to people in need of food from the community.

A caring community and hard working letter carriers and volunteers, working together to help people in need of food in our community; that’s what makes our community great.

**** Thanks to all of the letter carriers, volunteers of local food pantries, and people in communities across America for donating and for helping. ****
