Leave canned goods by mailbox Saturday

Jamestown letter carriers will hold their annual food drive on Saturday, May 11. They are ask­ing that residents leave a bag of nonperishable food items by their mailbox Saturday morning. Letter carriers will collect the items and deliver them to St. Mark’s Church. Last year more than 2,500 pounds of food was collected in James­town. Nationally, Americans do­nated at least 70 million pounds of food for the ninth consecutive year. Accepted items includes pea­nut butter, boxed goods like cereal, pasta, rice, and canned items such as soup, meat, fish, vegetable, fruits and juices.
