Stamp Out Hunger May 10thâ€“Leave Food At Your Mailbox
Every year in Burien and communities across the US, the National Association of Letter Carriers (in other words, your Postal Carrier) volunteer to help “Stamp Out Hunger” in America by picking up food items left at mailboxes, so don’t forget to start gathering your goods.
This year the collection will take place on Saturday, May 10th, and all collections remain local:
The drive, in its 16th year, is the largest one-day food collection in the nation and the biggest community service effort by any union affiliated with the AFL-CIO.
â€œThe food drive is the hallmark of the unionâ€™s tradition of community service,â€ said NALC President William H. Young, â€œa very rich tradition that includes numerous heroic acts by carriers as they deliver mail along their routes, the year-long campaign to collect funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, and watching out for the elderly through the Carrier Alert program.â€
