Epworth thanks postal carriers for donations

May 19, 2017

We want to extend our sincere appreciation to area residents who participated in the Stamp Out Hunger food drive May 13.

This was the 25th year for the campaign, sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers.

Because of the generous donations of nonperishable food items – despite miserably wet weather on the day of the drive - the Food Pantry at Epworth United Methodist Church will be well stocked for much of this year. Epworth's pantry is one of several recipients of food donations to Stamp Out Hunger in the Rehoboth Beach area.

The Epworth pantry also receives food from church members and friends and through campaigns conducted by other organizations and businesses. In 2016, approximately 1,800 families or households were able to obtain nutritious food items at no cost through the Epworth Food Pantry, which is administered through the church's Good Samaritans program.

Hunger and homelessness are very real problems, even in this resort area. The Epworth Food Pantry is one vital resource to address this need. Thank you for supporting the Stamp Out Hunger drive!
