Letter carriers work overtime on their day off, gearing up for "Stamp Out Hunger" food drive

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee-area letter carriers worked overtime on Sunday, April 24th to help feed the hungry.

The letter carriers, on their day off, sorted and weighed more than a half-million postcards to let people know about the Hunger Task Force's "Stamp Out Hunger" food drive.

It is easy to make a donation.

On May 14th, all you have to do is put a food donation in your mailbox.

All of the food donated in the Milwaukee area will stay in the Milwaukee area.

"Here in Milwaukee, we have about 35,000 every month that are visiting local food pantries and over half those people are kids," Jonathan Hansen with the Hunger Task Force said.

During the week leading up to May 14th, letter carriers will drop off blue bags that you can fill with non-perishable food items.
