The annual Letter Carriers' Food Drive held last month produced record-breaking results!
The National Association of Letter Carriers announced today that the 24th annual Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive, held on Saturday, May 14, collected more than 80 million pounds of food, well above the previous record of 77 million pounds.
And the food drive now has surpassed 1.5 billion pounds since it began in 1993.
“These results are gratifying because they mean that even more people will be helped,” NALC President Fredric Rolando said. “As letter carriers, we are honored to be able to assist people in need. On a daily basis we see the struggles in the communities we serve, and we believe it's important to do all we can to help.
