On Saturday, May 10, Second Harvest Heartland benefited from the 22st Annual National Association of Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. Each year, hundreds of thousands of pounds of food are collected across the metro area for Second Harvest Heartland and our partner agencies. We are thrilled to announce that this year, nearly 775,000 pounds of food was collected – and more is still rolling in!
For the second year, TCF Bank became a matching sponsor of the drive locally. For donations made to Second Harvest Heartland toward Stamp Out Hunger from April 28 – May 14, TCF Bank matched $1 for $1 up to a total match of $25,000. This match helped motivate donors to contribute an additional $35,451 towards the event!
Between pounds collected and dollars raised, we will be able to provide over 820,000 meals (and counting!)
A special thanks to the volunteers that made the event happen and our local partners and sponsors: Cub Foods, TCF Bank, WCCO Radio, National Association of Letter Carriers Minneapolis Branch 9 and Saint Paul Branch 28, USPS, KARE 11, and the Minnesota Transport Services Association.
