The National Association of Letter Carriers Union launched the annual “Stamp Out Hunger Drive” in Texarkana this Tuesday, led by union leaders.

In the upcoming days, postal service workers will distribute grocery bags to some residents across ArkLaTex as part of this year’s food drive initiative. Residents are encouraged to fill these bags with non-perishable food items and place them by their mailboxes for pickup on Saturday (May 11).

Expressing gratitude for the community’s support, Sanjera Johnson, president of the NALC Union, emphasized the impact of even a single donation, stating, “Thank you all for your support. Remember, one can feed so many children. We want to thank you all for embarking on this journey with us to feed as many as we can.”

Johnson highlighted the success of last year’s drive, which gathered over 20,000 pounds of food for the Harvest Regional Food Bank, serving nine counties across Arkansas and Texas.

Camille Wrinkle, director of the food bank, stressed the ongoing importance of the drive, especially in light of recent storms affecting neighboring states. She emphasized the continuous high demand for food in the area and the vital role of the local community in supporting families, children, and the elderly.

The partnership between Harvest Regional Food Bank and the NALC Union has spanned over three decades, reflecting a longstanding commitment to addressing food insecurity in the region.
