On Saturday, May 9, 2015, the Letter Carriers’ Food Drive celebrates its 23rd year helping the hungry. Carriers collect non-perishable food donations left by mailboxes and deliver them to local food banks. If you wish to donate, place your non-perishable food donation next to your mailbox before your letter carrier delivers mail on the second Saturday in May. The carrier will do the rest. The food is sorted, and delivered to your local food bank, where it is available for needy families.
