BCMS students fold bags for Stamp Out Hunger program

April 17, 2013 

Students at Bernard Campbell Middle School recently completed a community-service project for the United States Postal Service’s Stamp Out Hunger Program. Approximately 90 students folded bags for the food-collection program.

The bags are used by the United States Postal Service to collect food donations for the organization each year. They are placed at mailboxes, so postal customers can donate food items which are then delivered by the Postal Service to Harvesters and other food banks.

The BCMS students folded approximately 5,000 bags for Harvesters during April. In past years, students from the middle school have traveled to Harvesters to volunteer.
