Letter Carriers Food Drive 2013

The National Association of Letter Carriers food drive will take place on May 11, 2013. It is an important effort in the fight against hunger in our area. United Food Operation will again assist the Letter Carriers by distributing the food they collect through 13 food pantries in Kanawha and Putnam counties.

Led by letter carriers represented by the National Association of Letter Carriers (AFL-CIO), with the help of rural letter carriers, other postal employees and numerous other volunteers, nationally, the drive has resulted in delivery of more than one billion pounds of donations to community food banks and pantries over the past 20 years.
