National Letter Carriers 25th Anniversary STAMP OUT HUNGER Food Drive
|When||May 13 2017|
|Location||All Over Caldwell County|
|Admission||Bags of Food at Your Mailbox!|
Millions of Americans live from one day to the next uncertain where their next meal will come from—a sad statistic that helps to reinforce the importance of our annual national Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive.
“Letter carriers see many of these folks along our routes each day,” NALC President Fredric Rolando said. “Our food drive can make a positive difference in the lives of those who have been dealt difficult hands.”
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the national drive, Rolando noted. “Our work and our success will be just as crucial this year as ever, since the problem of hunger in this country shows little sign of going away,” he said.
The Food Drive in Caldwell County provides a much needed "stocking of shelves" to Caldwell County Yokefellow, the Lenoir Soup Kitchen and South Caldwell Christian Ministries. County residents are urged to pack a bag of non-perishables and place at their mailbox that morning.
