P.P.S. Another big benefit happening the same day, not directly affiliated with WSCGSD but we always ask that you include it in your plan for the day, whether you’re selling or shopping, since it’s also on the second Saturday each year – the Stamp Out Hunger letter carriers’ food drive – put out a bag of nonperishable food by your mailbox, door, wherever your carrier can pick it up!
