Letter Carriers’ Food Drive to Benefit CHOW
For the last 29 years (except for last year), something special happens on the second Saturday in May. It's back this year and is just as important as ever, it's the 2021 Stamp Out Hunger Donor Drive.
The National Association of Letter Carriers (NACL) and the National Rural Letter Carriers' Association are having their annual food drive around the country. ON Saturday, you are once again encouraged to leave non-perishable food donations in a bag by your mailbox.
The Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse (CHOW) program will be the recipient in our area again this year. They do so much to help those in need and this is one of their biggest events to help re-stock their shelves. In 2020, CHOW was down around 300,000 pounds from the year before so who knows what may happen in 2021.
The letter carriers in the area will be collecting non-perishable food donations in a bag that you can leave by your mailbox this Saturday. While you're out shopping this week, pick up a few extra items to help out CHOW. Every little bit helps but no glass containers, please.
I want to say "thanks" to all of our mail carriers for their efforts and hard work that you do throughout the year and a special "THANK YOU" for what you'll be doing on Saturday.
My daughter, Tara and I will continue to do our part and we hope that you'll be able to help too. By the way, if you're looking for another way that you can help CHOW, you can donate to our "Neighbors Feeding Neighbors" Food Drive here.
