The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) will conduct its 26th annual national food drive this Saturday, May 12. The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive, the country’s largest single-day food drive, provides residents with an easy way to donate food to those in need in our communities. Customers simply leave their donation of non-perishable goods next to their mailbox before the delivery of the mail on Saturday, May 12. Letter carriers will collect these food donations on that day as they deliver mail along their postal routes and distribute them to local food agencies. “With the economic struggles many Americans face, the Letter Carriers’ Food Drive is as critical as ever,” says Ken Lerch, president of Letter Carriers Branch 3825 in Rockville. “Food pantries that help to feed our area's needy families have to be replenished so they can continue their good work. That's why the NALC food drive is so important," adds Community Services Agency Executive Director Sonte DuCote.
