MARCY, N.Y - The U.S Postal Service is hoping to stamp out hunger with Saturday's annual "Stamp out Hunger" food drive.
Postal workers throughout the country went door to door looking for food donations.
Mail workers throughout the Mohawk Valley participated as well.
Mail workers say that last year's donation count was large. They were hoping to do even better this year.
"Depending on the year, last year my whole entire truck was full by the time I was heading back to the post office," said Postal Worker Phil Canarelli.
All of the donations made throughout the area go to local food pantries.
