  • Letter Carriers Food Drive Saturday Is Powerful Collective Action For The Common Good - 05-12-17
    Print Icon May 11, 2017

    By Doug Cunningham

    The National Association of Letter Carrier's annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive has given an astounding 1.4 billion pounds of food to local food pantries for the needy since it started 25 years ago. The union is urging you to use the plastic bag sent to your mailbox to load it with food and put it out by your mailbox early this Saturday morning.

    NALC's Pam Donato says union postal workers are publicizing the food drive by any means necessary to make this huge food drive happen.

    [Pam Donato]: "We use social media a lot now. Certainly use TV and radio and posters, flyers, church bulletins. Anything that we can. Anything that would catch somebody's attention to remind them that the second Saturday in May, May 13th, is the day they can leave a food donation at the mailbox and it will get to a local pantry.

    We believe this food drive is a great cause. And we're just grateful to postal customers across the country and we just want to say thank you."

    Donato's union is at the heart of a collective effort to meet a real food need for the most vulnerable among us. It's a powerful example of the spirit of collective action for the public good.

    [Pam Donato]: "We've got partners that include the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) who go a long way to make sure we can pay for those post cards.

    The Postal Service is an invaluable partner. We could not do this event if it weren't for them.

    And certainly we have United Way, the AFL-CIO. We've got partners that are really deep in their commitment to making sure that the issue of hunger is dealt with at the local community level.
