This Saturday, May 9 help “Stamp Out Hunger” by participating in the Letter Carriers’ Food Drive. In preparation for the possible severe weather on Saturday, consider taking your canned food donations to your local post office today or tomorrow. Or, leave canned food and other non-perishable food donations by your mailbox for your letter carrier to pick up on Saturday. In Ardmore, donations will benefit House of Prayer, Community Children’s Shelter and Loaves and Fishes in partnership with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.


Most needed items include: canned meats, meat-based soups, canned fruits, canned vegetables, peanut butter, and rice and beans. Nonperishable food donations can also be dropped off at participating post offices. Monetary donations can also be made online at or by calling (405) 600.3136. Every dollar donated will provide five meals for Oklahomans with inconsistent access to food.
