The Takeaway: We understand all too well that starting a new exercise regimen can be daunting when you’re out of shape.

Stamp Out Hunger results reported
The Takeaway: Here’s a nice update from the USPS to end your week! On May 12, 2018, the US Postal Service held their annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive. As part of the event, they asked residents to leave non-perishable items near their mailbox to be collected for families who face hunger during the summer months, when school breakfast and lunch programs are suspended. All in all, USPS employees collected more than 71.6 million pounds of food, which was donated to food pantries in 10,000 communities across the US. That’s a lot of green beans.
