On Saturday, May 11, Southborough postal carriers will once again join their peers across the country in the nation’s largest single-day food drive. Items collected in Southborough as part of the 21st Annual Stamp Out Hunger event will go directly to the United Parishes of Southborough Food Pantry.
You can help by leaving a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods next to your mailbox prior to your normal mail delivery on Saturday, May 11. Local letter carriers will collect the donations as they deliver the mail and take them to the food pantry at Pilgrim Church.
Your donations will help the residents of Southborough and members of its churches who are struggling to put food on their tables every day.
