For more than 20 years, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) has conducted an annual nationwide food drive on the second Saturday in May. Using the unparalleled postal networks, letter carriers collect non-perishable food donations on that day as they deliver mail along their postal routes. It is held in 10,000 cities and towns in all 50 states.
“Many people in this country struggle with hunger every day,” NALC President Fredric Rolando said. “We are honored to be able to help people in need by leading an effort that brings out the best in so many Americans.” For more than a decade, the drive has annually collected more than 70 million pounds of food. The Presbyterian Food Pantry in Green Bay is one of the recipients of this food.
If you are able to help on Saturday, May 14, please be at the Cofrin Post Office Station (1950 Cofrin Drive) at 1:30 p.m. or volunteer to sort food donations in Banner Hall at First Presbyterian Church at 3:30 p.m.
