Stamp Out Hunger returns post-Covid

May 6, 2022

The Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger food drive will celebrate two milestones for its 2022 campaign—its 30th anniversary and its return after a two-year, Covid-dictated hiatus. On Friday, May 6th, Laurel Mayor Johnny Magee met with Demetria Bridges from the Laurel post office, Grant Staples from Glory House, and other members of the community to read a proclamation promoting the return of the annual food drive.

The drive will take place on Saturday, May 14. Those wishing to participate can leave their donations in or near their mail boxes that day for volunteers to collect. Donations will be presented to local charities including Glory House whose food pantry currently feeds over 1,000 families in the Pine Belt area.

The full proclamation can be found  at Proclamation-Letter Carriers' Food Drive

The City of Laurel, established as a lumber town in 1882, is conveniently situated approximately two hours from larger destination cities such as Jackson, Biloxi, New Orleans, and Mobile. In recent years, the city has become a destination all its own thanks, in part, to its starring role in HGTV’s popular “Hometown” series. As Laurel, and interest in it, continues to grow, we are committed to providing the resources necessary to help all of our residents and businesses reach their full potential.
