Madelene Williams, owner of Parcel Express, and Bobette Beesley, director of SEICAA, hope many people will bring in canned goods for the food bank as they ship their items at Parcel Express in Blackfoot.
If customers bring in a can of food, Parcel Express is offering $2 off on any package of five pounds or more that can be shipped UPS or FEDEX.
The canned food will be donated the Southeastern Idaho Community Action Agency (SEICAA).
Bring in your package, the $2 off coupon and a can of food.
The coupon can be found in Home Direct that is published by the Morning News. It was mailed to homes on Nov. 16 and 17.
The coupon expires on Thursday, Dec. 20.
"Our food bank can use any donations," said SEICAA director Bobette Beesley. "Every year it gets more and more interesting.
"Thank you," Beesley said. "It helps, that's for sure."
"Parcel Express does custom packing," said owner Madelene Williams. "We can prepare items or wrapped gifts that are brought in for shipping.
"We are the only business that can ship parcels via UPS, FEDEX or by mail," Williams said. "We price shop for our customers."
"We hope our customers take advantage of this offer," she said. "It will help them and help us because we won't be so slammed at Christmas."
"We've been going this for over 17 years," said Williams. "This really is my favorite time of year."
