FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — MAY 22, 2013 —
The annual food drive collected by the area’s mail carriers was called a success by the Yolo County Food Bank, which benefited from the drive.
Residents were asked to leave their bagged food donations outside for mail carriers to pick up on Saturday, May 11. The “Stamp Out Hunger” operation was the 21st annual such drive.
“The grand total of donations received by (the food bank) on behalf of the food drive is 16,525, with 6,720 from West Sacramento residents and 9,805 from Woodland residents,” reported Amanda McCarthy of the Food Bank of Yolo County. “This sets a new record for donations through ‘Stamp Out Hunger’!”
The drive takes place across the U.S. and in Puerto Rico, Guam and the Virgin Islands.
