The National Association of Letter Carriers’ 23rd Annual Food Drive was held on May 9. Every year, on the first Saturday in May, customers are asked to put non-perishable food donations in a sturdy bag near their mailbox, which Letter Carriers collect as they deliver the mail.

To help the cause, the APWU purchased some of the sturdy bags that were distributed to customers in Las Vegas and Upland, CA.
