Letter carriers collected almost 71 million pounds of food in this year’s food drive, held on May 9. “This shows the value of the universal postal network, which goes to more than 150 million addresses six days a week,” National Association of Letter Carriers President Fredric Rolando said. “It also shows the strong connection between letter carriers and the communities they serve, a unique bond that serves the nation well.” The food drive helps restock food banks, pantries and shelters around the country. "Our local collected 72,940 pounds of food," says NALC Branch 3825 president Ken Lerch. "We take great pride in being able to provide food for hungry working families, especially the children. Letter Carriers see first-hand the devastation of our communities by a Congress of millionaires who only pass legislation beneficial to other millionaires. Workers must help other workers."
