Your Friendly Mail Carrier is Sure You Will Participate in Spring Food Drive This Saturday

From NALC Food Drive Web site
Our country's mail carriers are an optimistic bunch.  They are very confident that you and I and neighbors all over the country are going to participate in the spring food drive this coming Saturday, May 10. The spring food drive tends to get less participation than the November collection, when postal customers  are especiially motivated by the coming holidays to leave a bag of non-perishable food items by their mail box.

But the National Association of Letter Carriers is confident that this spring drive will draw strong participation.Imagine, if you will, the controlled chaos currently underway at more than 1,500 branches all across the United States, as food drive coordinators, family members and volunteers race to get everything in place for the nation’s largest one-day food collection effort on Saturday, May 10.

So help this prediction come true. Please don't forget to leave a bag of non-perishable food items by your mail box or take it directly to the nearest post office.  The food you donate will go to your local food bank. (That means Roadrunner Food Bank in Albuquerque and Las Cruces, the Food Depot in Santa Fe, and other regional food banks around the state).

And if this appeal is not enough to convince you, check out the NALC's public service announcements in English and Spanish.
