Volunteers Need to Stamp Out Hunger

Be a part of the largest food drive in the nation, Saturday May 8.  Join Marshfield Area United Way, National Association of Letter Carriers and the Marshfield Post Office for the annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive.

Volunteers are needed from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. to sort food and load trucks at the Marshfield Post Office.  Any amount of time is appreciated: service can vary from 30 minutes to one or more hours.

To volunteer contact Cheryl Hartl at Soup Or Socks at 387-1796 or email

On Saturday May 8, place a bag of nonperishable food by your mailbox. Your letter carrier will pick it for distribution to local food pantries, St. Vincent DePaul and Soup Or Socks.

Marshfield area residents donated 20,453 pounds of non-perishable food items in last year's drive to Stamp Out Hunger.

This food is distributed to Soup or Socks and St. Vincent DePaul to help friends, family and neighbors in need.  In the 16 years the Marshfield area has participated, residents have donated a total of 203,388 pounds of food.

For more information about Stamp Out Hunger or United Way call 384-9992.
