Lynn letter carriers from Branch 7 and Branch 25, both members of the North Shore Labor Council, are passionate about raising neighborhood donations in the nation’s largest single-day food drive! The National Association of Letter Carriers has organized their Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive Number 25 to help replenish local food banks all over America. Last year’s 24th annual NALC food drive collected a record 80 million pounds of non-perishable food!
To contribute to this extraordinary food drive, put non-perishable food donations in a bag by your mailbox on Saturday, May 13. Your letter carrier will see that it gets delivered to a local food bank. In Lynn, food donations will go to the Lynn Hunger Network and My Brother’s Table.
Nearly 49 million Americans -1 in 6 – are unsure where their next meal is coming from. Sadly, this includes 13 million children and 5 million seniors. So let’s heed the Letter Carriers’ call to help the working poor, the homeless, and anyone who needs food from pantries and shelters. We can serve our underserved communities and restock food bank shelves before summer.
Once again “Labor Leads the Way,” thanks to the NALC, USPS, AFL-CIO, UFCW, and other food drive partners!
