On May 8, Clay Darrohn, CEO and “Big Tuna” at fishbat, announces its participation in “Stamp Out Hunger,” on Saturday, May 11 to benefit Island Harvest Food Bank, Long Island’s largest hunger relief organization.
Island Harvest has joined forces with the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) and the United States Postal Service (USPS) to “Stamp Out Hunger” as part of the nation’s largest one-day food drive. On Saturday, May 11, Island Harvest, the NALC and the USPS are asking all Long Island residents to leave a bag of non-perishable food items by their mailbox. The items will be collected by mail carriers and delivered to Island Harvest.
Darrohn says fishbat, one of the nation’s leading online marketing companies, will be volunteering at Island Harvest to sort and pack food products to be distributed to those in need. “There are over 300,000 adults and children suffering from hunger on Long Island,” he says. “And about 70,000 people rely on soup kitchens or food pantries to eat every day. We’re proud to assist Island Harvest combat these unfortunate numbers and make Long Island a better place to live for all people.”
All of the food collected will be donated directly to the 570 community-based organizations that receive food support from Island Harvest. “We need all kinds of nonperishable items, like canned soups, vegetables, meats and fish,” Darrohn says. “Pasta, cereal and rice are also acceptable. If you want to donate, all you need to do is leave these items outside your home on Saturday by your mailbox. Everyone has food that they can’t eat or don’t need. This is a great opportunity to look in your cabinets for what you can spare that will benefit our community.”
The USPS will be collecting food across the country on May 11th. “Everyone can donate,” Darrohn says. “So remember to leave nonperishable food at your mailbox on Saturday! It’s super easy!” For more information about Island Harvest, visit their Facebook page.
