National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive
Saturday, May 13
Your mailbox/front door!

calendarWorking in partnership with the AFL-CIO Labor Liaison Network, United Way and a host of other partners, members of the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) get food into the cupboards of those in need. All people need to do is place a bag of unopened, non-perishable food next to their mailbox before their letter carrier delivers their mail on Saturday, May13th, and the carrier will do the rest. Once collected, the food is taken back to the postal station, sorted, and delivered by union volunteers to area food banks or pantries.

We ask you to please publicize, promote and most importantly, participate in the May 13th NALC Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.

For more info: please contact Yael Foa, National Community Engagement United Way Program Coordinator, at 202-639-6245 or
