Remember to leave your bags of non-perishable food by your mail boxes this Saturday as letter carriers conduct their annual food drive. In every corner of this country, there are people and families who are hungry, including children, says National Association of Letter Carriers President Fredric Rolando, who emphasizes that there has never been a greater need for a successful drive. As letter carriers, we have the privilege of serving communities six days a week, of getting to know people, and we are grateful to have the opportunity to serve them this way as well. The nations 230,000 active letter carriers will collect donations and take them to a local food bank, pantry or shelter, including hundreds affiliated with Feeding America, a national partner in the drive. The NALC encourages people to leave a sturdy bag of non-perishable foods, such as canned soup, canned vegetables, canned meats and fish, pasta, rice or cereal next to their mailbox before the regular mail delivery this Saturday.
