Got a post card in the mailbox this week. announcing that the National Association of Letter Carriers (AFL-CIO) Food Drive - the nation’s largest food drive to combat hunger - will be conducted this year on Saturday, May 12.
I already knew that, thanks to this post from Jim at Serotoninrain, who is himself a letter carrier. Jim's post also serves to remind us that, just as we show our generosity to the needy, with the food we donate, we might also show some consideration to participating letter carriers. In our family's case, we try to meet our carrier at the corner where he parks his truck each day ..... in his case, our carrier walks each block door-to-door, and those groceries can get heavy in the course of a round-trip back to his truck.
