The APWU National officers are asking members to actively support the 27th Annual National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on Saturday, May 11. 

Each year on the second Saturday in May, Postal workers come together to collect and donate millions of pounds of food for local food banks. Donations are collected in over 10,000 cities and towns in all 50 states plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands. 

Postal customers across the country are asked to put non-perishable food donations in a sturdy bag and place the bag near their mailbox prior to their regular mail delivery on Saturday, May 11. Letter carriers will collect the donations as they deliver mail. Many USPS worksites also set out containers to collect contributions. 

All donations are tax-deductible, as they are going to local non-profit charity food agencies. Contact your local post office to know where your donation is going or to help volunteer.
