LETTER CARRIERS FOOD DRIVE TODAY ACROSS AMERICA

Please Help Stamp Out Hunger!
Branches ready to ‘Bust a Billion’ in 18th NALC national food drive.
The drive this year hopes to exceed last year’s 73.4 million pounds nationally, which would easily surpass the 1 billion total mark, since the current total stands at 982.7 million pounds.

Residents are asked to set out non-perishable food items at their mailboxes for mail carriers and their helpers to pick up this Saturday. Items can also be brought to local post offices during regular business hours.
Many local groups, organizations and volunteers will help out with this year’s food drive, including many local United Ways.

This national community service project has become the largest ONE DAY [and easiest[ food drive in the world.
Place some n on-perishable food items by your mailbox before your "mailman" arrives- and they will collect it and make sure it gets to a local food bank in your area.

Thank you Sploofers!

Thanks for the reminder, Al. This is a very easy way to help.

Thank you, Al! Will be going by the local PO today with a bag of canned goods. There's nowhere to leave bags in front of our condo's mailboxes. Need to mail some things out anyway, and am looking forward to participating in this worthy nationwide event. Way to go, USPS! (Didn't think there would ever be an occasion for saying that...)

The darn, irresponsible, no-good cheats made the rounds today and helped themselves to what was hung on our neighborhood's mailboxes for the mailman. I have no use for such trash! I hope I put my food out late enough that the postal worker got it instead of the thieves!!!

Years ago I used to volunteer at a food bank from donations. Back then, pork and beans were 25 cents a can in most stores.
Please try to limit the number of cans of them because they are cheap ( I think). Have no clue now how much they are...yuck!
But anyway, a lot of the needy that came weekly already had too many cans of them and not enough canned veggies or jars of peanut butter, jelly, etc.
maybe the thieves were also needy if they were in need enough to steal the cans(?)

Flcyclist, it might be that someone was helping the mail carriers pick up the bags. I know the Boy Scouts help in my community. I don't know for sure that they go around picking things up from houses, but I could see where the load would be too much for the mail carriers to handle in their vehicles. Just a thought. I hope that's what happened.
