Volunteers needed for postal carriers food drive May 5
Local Postal Service mail carriers will conduct their annual Postal Carriers Food Drive May 10, a Saturday.
Cam Campbell, volunteer program manager at Rowan Helping Ministries, says the carriers group and the local nonprofit agency need volunteers to help box the food once the postal carriers bring it back to the main post office on East Innes Street.
Last year, the food drive raised more than 14,000 pounds of food for Rowan Helping Ministries’ Food Pantry.
“We need adults and older kids who can help throughout the day,” Campbell said this week. “If you know of any high school kids who need community service hours, this would be a way to earn them.”
Volunteers will work in two shifts ó 12:30 to 3 p.m. and 3 to 6 p.m. “or whatever you could give that day,” Campbell said.
Anyone who wants to volunteer, should e-mail Campbell at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or call the main Rowan Helping Ministries number, 704-637-6838, and ask for Cam or Megan.
