Letter Carriers’ Food Drive – Saturday, 5/12/18

The National Association of Letter Carriers will hold their annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on Saturday, May 12.  This year marks the 26th annual drive, which began in Chicago and continues to succeed thanks to the vision and leadership of NALC Branch 11.

Each year, NALC holds the food drive in May, just weeks before school lets out for the summer.  During the summer time, families rely on food pantries and other services for nutrition.  The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is aimed to help restock food pantries across the country ahead of the summer months.

On Saturday, May 12, residents across the Chicagoland area are asked to leave a bag of non-perishable food donations on the doorstep.  These donations will be collected by the letter carriers when they make their regular mail deliveries and will be distributed to local food pantries.
