Branch 22 of the National Association of Letter Carriers will conduct its 22nd annual food drive for “Stamp Out Hunger” on Saturday, with the help of the United States Postal Service, the Rural Letter Carriers and the United Way.

All nonperishable items collected will be donated to the Indiana County Community Action Program’s Food Bank and the Love Basket Foundation.

Last year’s food drive collected more than 3 tons of nonperishable goods. To donate, place nonperishable food items in a bag or box by your mailbox Saturday morning.
