Feeding the Hungry Along the Shoreline

All our heartfelt thanks to those in our community who work so hard to help feed our neighbors in need.


The numbers are in, and once again the people of the shoreline have answered the call to help their neighbors in need.  At SSKP we received 8,910 pounds of donated food through the “Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive”, held by United States Postal Service letter carriers on May 10th. The food was received at our pantries in Clinton, Westbrook, Old Saybrook and Old Lyme, and was weighed, sorted and shelved by our hardworking volunteers for weekly distributions to local families in need.

This was the 22nd year that the National Association of Letter Carriers, in cooperation with the National Rural Carriers Association and the United States Post Office, has conducted the nationwide “Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive”.

“We are so grateful to all the mail carriers and postal employees who worked so hard on this year’s food drive,” said Patty Dowling, Executive Director. “Also a big thank you to all of the dedicated SSKP pantry volunteers, who helped prepare the food for distribution. Last but not least, heartfelt thanks to the many residents who gave so generously to this year’s Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.  Hunger is real along the shoreline, and we are so thankful to have the support of our community.”
