On Saturday, May 13, 2017, the Letter Carriers’ Food Drive celebrates its 25th year helping the hungry.
For more than 20 years, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) has conducted an annual nationwide food drive on the second Saturday in May. Using the unparalleled postal networks, letter carriers collect non-perishable food donations
on that day as they deliver mail along their postal route.
Community Food Bank needs your help!!! Volunteers are needed to help unload the mail carrier vans and sort through the donated food items so they are ready for distribution to our partnering agencies.
