With Food Drive imminent, last-minute push is underway
May 2014—Imagine, if you will, the controlled chaos currently underway at more than 1,500 branches all across the United States, as food drive coordinators, family members and volunteers race to get everything in place for the nation’s largest one-day food collection effort on Saturday, May 10.
“A lot of us have been through a pretty wild winter,” NALC President Fredric Rolando said, “and springtime has struggled to take hold in many parts of the country, so we’ve got our fingers crossed that Mother Nature will give us a break on that special Saturday—especially since that happens to be the day before Mother’s Day this year.”
NALC Community Membership Outreach Coordinator Pam Donato considers weather just another variable that letter carriers will simply overcome as usual.
“We’ve mailed out the food drive reminders, we’ve renewed our relationships with local food banks, and we’ve got our volunteers ready for a full day of heavy bags and loaded LLVs,” Donato said. “And even if the weather doesn’t cooperate, we are confident that our generous patrons will step up and give what they can, no matter what.”
