Local food drive planned Saturday
BEMIDJI — United Way of the Bemidji Area encourages area businesses to sponsor internal workplace food drives in support of the Bemidji Community Food Shelf as a primer to Saturday’s National Association of Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. Businesses can bring their non-perishable food items to the Bemidji Post Office at 401 Irvine Ave. NE.
Mitch Dokken, the post office coordinator for the event encourages community members to leave sturdy bags containing non-perishable foods in or on their mailboxes prior to the time of regular mail delivery on Saturday.
