Letter carrier food drive May 12
Local letter carriers are participating in a national food collection campaign, “Stamp Out Hunger.” Workers ask citizens to place bags of non-perishable food beside their mailboxes May 12. Letter carriers will pick up the food and distribute it to food pantries, including the Committee on Church Cooperation and Neighborhood Christian Center in Decatur.
Last year, local workers collected more than 21,000 pounds of food, said Jack McClanahan, president of the local branch of the National Association of Letter Carriers.
