Saturday May 9, 2014 is the annual Letter Carrier’s Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. Simply leave a non-perishable food donation in a bag at your mailbox. That’s it! Your letter carrier will pick up your donation and deliver it to Brazosport Cares. The food collected in our community goes directly to help those in need in our own community.
Every second Saturday in May, letter carriers in more than 10,000 cities and towns across America collect the goodness and compassion of their postal customers, who participate in the NALC Stamp Out Hunger National Food Drive — the largest one-day food drive in the nation.
Led by letter carriers represented by the National Association of Letter Carriers (AFL-CIO), with help from rural letter carriers, other postal employees and other volunteers, the drive has delivered more than one billion pounds of food the past 20 years.
Carriers collect non-perishable food donations left by mailboxes and in post offices and deliver them to local community food banks, pantries and shelters.
