Stamp Out Hunger Today

Today is the U.S. Postal Service's annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive. Earlier in the week, a postcard in my mailbox alerted me that the drive would take place today, and well-timed local publicity featuring community postal officials and carriers added a neighborhood element to the campaign. My bag of nonperishable food cans and packages is already in front of the mailbox, awaiting pickup.
 
As of this moment, the campaign's Facebook page has more than 78,000 "likes" and it's using Twitter to spread the word, as well, with #StopDropDonate as the hashtag. A Google search turns up 1.5 million hits for this year's food drive and more than 1 million images. 

I hope the drive collects a record amount of food this year!
