Letter Carriers around Sioux Falls and across the country did more than just deliver the mail on Saturday, they lent a helping hand to those in need.
The 21st Annual 'Stamp Out Hunger' Food Drive is one of America's largest food drives that benefits local food pantries. Letter Carriers and volunteers in Sioux Falls collected thousands of pounds of food donated by residents that will help stock the shelves at the Sioux Falls Food Pantry.
Last year, the local drive collected 86,000 pounds of food and this year the goal was even bigger.
“The goal with any food drive is obviously to beat last year’s goal which would be fairly close to 88,000 pounds, but to break 90 to 100,000 pounds would be amazing,” said John Geyer, Manager of the Sioux Falls Food Pantry.
Letter carriers will be collecting donations on Monday as well.
