The easiest food drive ever this weekend — just leave a can in your mailbox

A Warm 106.9 listener named Kim gave us the heads up on this  . . .  Saturday May 9 is the Letter Carriers’ Annual “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive. Over at the National Association of Letter Carriers website, they explain this simple idea:

On the morning of Saturday, May 9, just set out your non-perishable food items well before your letter carrier’s normal pick-up time. Note that he or she will be delivering and collecting mail as usual, on top of collecting food donations, so that pickup time could be slightly later than usual.

There’s really no excuse not to help — just put a can of soup in your mailbox, and your carrier does the rest! And the best part is that all the donations stay local — you’re helping stamp out hunger right here in the Northwest.

Thanks to the letter carriers for hauling all that extra weight around on Saturday, and thanks to you for contributing.
