May 14   Metrocrest Services Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive
We need your help collecting food as part of the US Postal Carriers annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. On Saturday, May 14th, the postal carriers will pick up any donated food left near your mailbox. If you live in Addison, Carrollton, Farmers Branch, or Coppell we’d love for you to participate. That food will be sent to our food pantry. Just put out food in bags either Friday night or Saturday morning and your postal carrier will pick up.

If you do not live in one of the communities listed above you can still participate; the food you leave out will either go to the North Texas Food Bank or to a local pantry in your area.

 
Our food pantry is in great need of all items. For the first six months of our fiscal year we have seen visits to the pantry increase by 37% over last year. The shelves are getting low so this is a great opportunity to restock.
