  • Plan to help ‘stamp’ out hunger Saturday

    This Saturday, the National Association of Letter Carriers and partnering organizations will sponsor the 23rd-annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive.

    We’re proud that in Perry County, the Tell City post office will again be among offices in more than 10,000 U.S. cities taking part.

    This means our city and rural letter carriers will not only deliver our U.S. mail and packages Saturday, but they will also pick up donations of nonperishable goods we’ve (hopefully) left at our mailboxes.
