2019 Food Drive


The Amboy Post Office held its annual Stamp Out Hunger drive on Saturday. A total of 874 pounds of food was collected this year. The food will be evenly split between the food pantries at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church and the First Baptist Church. Pictured with the collection of food, pictured is, Jeanna Ohda, postmaster, Jeff Remrey, Mary Majeski, Debbie Bauer, Kim Dale, and Lynnette Lawrence. The Letter Carriers' food drive is held annually on the second Saturday in May in 10,000 cities and towns in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and Guam. It remains as important as ever, with many people facing economic struggles. Hunger affects tens of millions of people around the country, including millions of children, senior citizens and veterans. Letter carriers see these struggles in the communities they serve, and believe that it is important to do what they can to help.
