lf you can, please help our Norwood neighbors in need by leaving one or more bags of food by your mailbox Saturday, May 12.(Please mark it for the Letter Carrier’s Food Drive.) The food will be picked up as carriers go about their regular mail deliveries.

All types of non-perishable food – from peanut butter and jelly to coffee and fruit and vegetable juices – are welcome. But right now, the pantry has a particularly urgent need for canned fruit, tuna and other canned meat, baked beans, canned pasta like SpaghettiOs and Chef Boyardee, and boxed meals such as Tuna and Hamburger Helper and Pasta Roni.

The only requirement is that all cans and boxes must be new and in good condition. Anything outdated or opened has to be thrown away for health reasons.

If you’d like to do even more to help, a large number of community volunteers are also needed to help with the sorting on Monday, May 13. This will take place at the Parish House of the First Baptist Church at 71 Bond Street in Norwood.

You can volunteer to work from 9 am to noon or 6 to 9 pm – or both, if you’re feeling particularly tireless. We need lots of willing hands and strong arms – plus people with pick-up trucks for hauling food to storage facilities. No need to call ahead. Just mark your calendar, show up, and pitch in!
