Utica, NY (WIBX) - For twenty years the United Way and National Association of Letter Carriers have been carrying a message that they wish they did not have to deliver.  More than 49-million Americans live in hunger.

You can help this Saturday, May 12, 2012 though, when mail carriers will pick up donations of non-perishable food left at mailboxes.

The "Stamp Out Hunger"  food drive, held annually on the second Saturday in May, is now the nation's largest single-day food drive, resulting in donations of more than 70 million pounds of food.

For more information please call: (315) 723.5254 or visit: www.helpstampouthunger.com or on Facebook at: www.facebook.com/StampOutHunger.
