Postal Food Drive – Stamp Out Hunger – May 12th

post office food drive montereyMonterey residents be ready!  Saturday, May 12th will be the National Association of Letter Carriers “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive. If you live in the city of Monterey, non-perishable food donations that you put out with your mail will come to The Salvation Army Monterey Peninsula Corps to support families right here on the peninsula. You may have already received a bag with The Salvation Army Red Shield logo on it. Simply put your food donations into the bag and put out by your mailbox. Your letter carrier will make sure the food gets delivered to us! If you didn’t receive a bag from the Post Office, that’s okay too. Just put your food donations in any bag and put out by your mailbox.

Don’t live in the city of Monterey? No problem. Each post office has decided where the food will goes. Most of the other local post offices are sending their food to the Food Bank of Monterey County that is located in Salinas. Either way, local families will still get the food they need.

What if Saturday doesn’t work for you or you want your food donations to come to The Salvation Army even if you don’t live in Monterey? That’s okay too. We always accept donations of non-perishable food items year round. You can drop off food donations to us directly at our Good Samaritan Center, located at 800 Scott Street in Sand City, between the hours of 8:30am and 4:30pm, Monday through Friday. We are closed for lunch from 12:00pm–1:00pm.

If you have additional questions about how The Salvation Army serves the local community, feel free to give us a call at 899-4911 or drop us an email at
