The Westport Woman's Club

National Assn. of Letter Carriers Food Drive/WWC Food Closet Event, May 14, 2016


The Westport Woman’s Club’s Food Closet partners each year–on the second Saturday in May–with theĀ National Assn. of Letter Carriers “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive. Postal workers collect and deliver bags of food to the WWC’s Bedford Hall. There, WWC volunteers receive and sort the food according to type, remove and discard expired items and transfer the net donations for storage and future distribution to Westporters in need, through Westport’s Dept. of Human Services.
