Letter Carriers Food Drive
Saturday, May 9
Each year, letter carriers collect food from citizens across the nation on the second Saturday of May. Local food banks rely heavily of these donations; the Letter Carriers Food Drive accounts for approximately 50% of the food that food banks receive for the entire year! Please participate in the annual Letter Carriers Food Drive by filling the yellow bag you’ll find in your mailbox with nonperishable food items and leave it for your letter carrier. Read more.
