The 21st Annual
National Association of Letter Carriers Food Drive For Local Food Shelves on May 11, 2013 was a huge success!
In the Green Mountain United Way service area of Caledonia, Essex, Orange, Orleans and Washington counties, an amazing 23,000 pounds of food were collected and distributed to 19 food shelves in those counties, compared to 19,350 pounds last year.
Across the nation, one in seven adults and nearly one quarter of all children are hungry and are not receiving the basic nutrition they need.
A big thank you goes out to all the community and letter carriers who helped Stamp Out Hunger by donating and delivering food helping to make this one-day drive a big success once again.
