Letter Carriers Food Drive
22nd Annual "Stamp Out Hunger"
Saturday, May 10th - your house

The annual Letter Carriers (NALC*) Food Drive is the largest one-day food drive in the nation, and the easiest. You just leave a bag of non-perishable items out by your mailbox, and your friendly letter carrier picks it up!

This year's drive will be held on its traditional second Saturday of May, May 10th. The Letter Carriers Food Drive collects somewhere north of 70 million pounds of food every year for community food banks, pantries and shelters. In 21 years, the Letter Carriers and their associates have collected more than ONE BILLION pounds of food!

Bravo to the U.S. Postal Service for supporting the Letter Carriers union  - without this massive back-up support gathering and transporting food collections, this drive wouldn't be the huge success that it is!

The hardest thing is to remember to get your bag of groceries out that Saturday before your regular mail delivery time - so write it on your calendar now!
