LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - While your mailman delivered mail on Saturday, they also picked up canned food donations along their route for the annual ‘Stamp Out Hunger’ food drive. Mail carriers left plastic bags in mailboxes in select towns across Oklahoma earlier in the week. On Saturday, residents left those bags full with canned goods for the carriers to collect.

One Lawton mail carrier Reginald Johnson says he likes this time of year because he wants to help.

"I’m always amazed in America how children go hungry,” said Johnson. “I don't understand, so that's why I do it. No child should starve at all so this is just another way to help someone."

Since 1993, the letter carriers’ food drive has raised more than 7.7 million pounds of food for residents in central and western Oklahoma. The food donated will go to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.
