O'Fallon Progress

Let’s ‘Stamp Out Hunger’

Dear Editor,

On Saturday, May 14, letter carriers in more than 10,000 cities and towns across America participated in the National Association of Letter Carriers ‘Stamp Out Hunger’ food drive.

Letter carriers collected non-perishable food donations left by mailboxes and in post offices and deliver them to local community food pantries and shelters.

The O’Fallon Community Food Pantry, helping residents of O’Fallon and Shiloh, receives food from the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive to help stock its shelves.

In 2015, we filled an average of 322 family requests for food per month.

Once again this year, we truly appreciate the O’Fallon Booster Club providing trucks and helpers to transport donations from the post office to the food pantry.

The amazing generosity of this community enables our food pantry to continue to help local families in need.

John Clatanoff

Board President of the O’Fallon Community Food Pantry
