Packing food pantries
The U.S. Post Office may be delivering fewer packages than in its heyday, but local members of the National Association of Letter Carriers are volunteering to deliver as many care packages as Indy residents care to contribute to local food pantries. The "Stamp Out Hunger" food drive, now in its 20th year, will collect all the bags of non-perishable, non-glass, non-expired items people want to leave at their mailboxes this Saturday, May 12. June Lyle, state director of AARP Indiana, told Indiana News Service that an estimated 6 percent of Indiana's seniors don't know where their next meal will come from. The services of local food banks are in high demand as Hoosiers continue to struggle to achieve or maintain prosperity.
