Postal Carrier Food Drive Stamp

Thank You, La Porte, and the La Porte Letter Carriers for the food that was delivered to the Salvation Army Food Pantry during your Food Drive this year. It was a very generous amount of food, estimated at 2,000 POUNDS MORE than last year. That’s a “ton” of generosity!

This was the 22nd annual drive. Did you miss it this year? Below is the sign that was outside of the post office for this year’s drive. Here is a tip from the letter carrier’s union website at http://www.nalc.org/commun/foodrive/faq.html:

When do I put out the food? On the second Saturday of May, just set out your food well before your letter carrier’s normal pick-up time. Note that he or she will be delivering and collecting mail as usual, on top of collecting food donations, so that pickup time could be slightly later than usual.

Thank you, again, La Porte and the National Association of Letter Carriers for helping us to do the most good.
