Downtown Needles, CA: Working together to help feed the community during the 27th 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 27th Annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on Saturday, May 11th, 2019.

People in Needles, California and across the United States of America 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 to help move boxes and bags of food donated by the local community.

Both letter carriers from the United States Postal Service and volunteers from St. Vincent de Paul and even local resident K. Charles Anderson were all there helping 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.

The donated food will be later sorted out and prepared inside the food pantry to be given out to people in need of food.

If you’re in need of food, come to St. Vincent de Paul’s Thrift Shop, located at 839 Front Street in Downtown Needles, California, between Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. PT.

You can also find out more information regarding donating food or volunteering at St. Vincent de Paul by calling: 1 (760) 326-4420.

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