"Stamp Out Hunger"


Annual National Association of

Letter Carriers Food Drive!


Saturday, May 11th, 2019


LaSalle, Peru and Oglesby letter carriers are asking residents to place nonperishable food items by their mailbox (no glass please). Carriers will pick up the items when they deliver your mail and take them to the Illinois Valley Food Pantry where volunteers will help unload the trucks and sort the items.


This is a very important event for the pantry. Donations usually decrease over the summer months, but the need increases. Families really struggle this time of year when our children are on summer vacation from school.


The Illinois Valley Food Pantry is very grateful to the letter carriers, residents of local communities, and volunteers who help make this food drive a success.


Any question call: Illinois Valley Food Pantry at (815) 224-3658 or the LaSalle Post Office (815) 223-2635


Thank you for your continued support to help "Stamp Out Hunger"!
