TOMS RIVER – One prominent Republican will be on hand to thank Toms River-based United States Postal Workers for their work Saturday afternoon.
Former Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno will join postal workers for an afternoon barbecue to say thanks for their part in “Stamp Out Hunger.”
Residents have been asked to leave out nonperishable food items in paper bags at their mailboxes Saturday, which will be picked up by letter carriers. The annual food drive is held across the country and its territories and is sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers. It’s held the second Saturday in May.
Guadagno was recently named as president and CEO of Fulfill, formerly the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties.
“I’m very pleased that Kim Guadagno will be visiting Toms River as Fullfill’s President and CEO,” Ocean County Freeholder Director Virginia E. Haines said. She’s a former board member of the food bank. “I’ve known Kim Guadagno for many years. She was an outstanding lieutenant governor and public official and now she brings that drive and commitment to the war against hunger.”
