Idaho Letter Carrier's Food Drive Saturday, May 13

2017 Letter Carrier's Annual Food Drive – Saturday May 13

The Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas needs the community's help for their largest food drive of the year. Saturday, as well, mail carriers will both deliver mail and collect food donations.

To donate food, please leave a bag of non-perishable food where the letter carrier delivers your mail, such as your mailbox.

Items particularly needed this year, LaFontaine said, include tuna, peanut butter, pasta, cereal, and juice. More than 220 union branches collected more than 11 million pounds of food - a one-day record in the United States.

McCullen said a year ago, the center received over 3,000 pounds of food after the drive. "100 percent of all the items that are donated within Bellefontaine and Logan County stays here".

In it's 25 year, the National Association of Letter Carriers will conduct it's annual, national food drive to fight hunger. Food collected in the areas from Twin Rocks to Manzanita will go to the North County Food Bank.

Usually, they take donations in person, at either of their Midland or Odessa facilities.

Letter carriers try to touch every single mail box in America during the Food Drive, but the fact is that they do admittedly miss some.

David Weaver, executive director of the South Plains Food Bank, said this comes at a crucial time as shelves at the food banks get depleted come summertime when the need typically increases.

Locally, Reasors, Warehouse Market, Wal-Mart and area banks continue to contribute their resources to assist the letter carriers on this annual drive.

The food drive's timing is pivotal, as well. The food goes to local distribution agencies.

If your donation is not picked up, contact the post office or simply place your donation by your mailbox on Monday instead.

We're all in the giving spirit during the holiday season and that's great, but people need help even more right now.
