23rd Annual Postal Carriers’ Food Drive
May 9, 2015
Help us spread the word! The Letter Carrier’s Food Drive returns for the 23rd year. On Saturday May 9th, just set out your food well before your letter carrier’s normal pick-up time and they will collect it!
A little history, every second Saturday in May, letter carriers in more than 10,000 cities and towns across America collect the goodness and compassion of their postal customers, who participate in the Stamp Out Hunger National Food Drive — the largest one-day food drive in the nation.
Note that your letter carrier will be delivering and collecting mail as usual, on top of collecting food donations, so that pickup time could be slightly later than usual.
No special bags are needed. Paper is sturdy and tends to hold more food, while plastic holds up better if it gets wet (in the rain, etc.). Cloth bags or boxes are also fine. So it’s your choice. And most bags and boxes can be easily recycled. They will take anything you leave out! All food stays in our local community! If you’d like to help give us a call at 586.7600
