"Stamp Out Hunger" Adopt-a-Route Driver at Lents Post Office


Every May, letter carriers across the nation collect donations of food as they deliver mail along their routes.  The hope in Oregon is to collect 1.5 million pounds of food during this one day event.  Volunteers are needed to help collect food and sort through it as it arrives at each post office.

  Drivers are needed to help collect food donations to help ease the burden on the letter carriers.  Drivers will work with a buddy; one will drive, one will grab the donations.  While you may end up a driver or a buddy, please register for this event with the understanding you will likely be a driver. 

Here is the link to register for this event: https://www.volgistics.com/ex/portal.dll/ap?AP=19253978&OR=1

Please make sure to do the following:  select LENTS POST OFFICE and in the box that says "Any Team Members" please put ACJ.  I will be working with the Oregon Food Bank.  If you RSVP and they do not confirm you have registered as a member of Team ACJ, I will remove you from the RSVP list.  **This is a flake intolerant event.**

If you would like to help with this event but closer to home, there are other positions available at other post office locations.  Here is the link of positions that are still available:

    Sorry I can't join this one - prior commitments. Love what you are all doing with OFB. You're in my thoughts.

    Heather, why did the rsvps close on this event. I was just getting ready to rsvp when I see that it is closed? So now I don't know whether I should go and register on the postal site or not. Let me know. Thanks. And you know that I can be a driver.

      Peter, thanks for beating me to this and fixing it. Hannah, sorry for the confusion! I set the RSVPs to close thinking there was a deadline to sign up with OFB.

      I have already filled out the online paperwork with the Food Bank today. See everyone on Saturday. Thanks for the update.

    Is there any possibility if I volunteer, I can be a buddy? I don't want to drive, my car gets horrible gas mileage.

      It's possible but is not something I can guarantee as this location is short on drivers.
