U.S. Letter Carriers Help Stamp Out Hunger
Each year in May, United Way of Snohomish County partners with local letter carriers, Volunteers of America Western Washington and the Snohomish County Labor Council to organize a county-wide food drive that gathers 400,000 pounds of food for area food banks. Postal customers are asked to place nonperishable food items near their mailbox and the Letter Carriers take them to a local food bank. Watch your local newspapers in early spring for details and dates and help stamp out hunger.
