Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive 2017Posted on April 27th, 2017
Annually, this drive raises over 250,000 pounds of food to be distributed to the hungry families in our community, making it the largest food drive of the year. April 26th – May 16th each Reasor’s location will be setup with a drop off location at the main entrance, here you will have the opportunity to purchase a pre-made sack with the most needed items for $15 or drop off your non-perishable food donation. You can also donate any amount at the register with a donation card. No donation is too small, every dollar helps!
To make donating even more convenient, National Letter Carriers will distribute donation bags to mailboxes all over Eastern Oklahoma. The sacks will arrive with a message asking participants to fill the bag with non-perishable food donations and place by the mailbox on Saturday, May 13th. Letter carriers will then pick up the donated items during their regular route. If you forget to leave your donations by the mailbox, you can still bring them into any Reasor’s store through May 16th.
