Do you know the history of the National Mail Carrier Food Drive?
Excerpted from the national site. “The NALC National Food Drive is the outgrowth of a tradition of community service exhibited repeatedly by members of the letter carriers union over the years. These carriers, go into neighborhoods in every town six days a week, being involved when something needed to be done, whether collecting funds for charity like the Muscular Dystrophy Association, watching over aging neighbors through the Carrier Alert program, assisting letter carriers and their families during times of disaster through the NALC Disaster Relief Fund, or rescuing victims of fires, crime, and other mishaps.”
