This Saturday, letter carriers will pick up and deliver your mail, just like they do every week. But what makes this particular Saturday so special is that your local carrier will also collect nonperishable goods for food banks donated by people like you across the country. Your donation matters right now, because food bank shelves that filled up over the winter from holiday generosity are often bare by late spring. And food banks are particularly stretched in the summer months serving the millions of children who rely on meal programs that are suspended when school is out. Sign up to participate, and Jobs with Justice will send you a reminder to put out your donation. The food drive, organized by the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC), is being carried out locally by members of NALC Branches 142 (D.C. and PG), 3725 (Montgomery County) and 576, 3520 and 5921 in northern Virginia.
