Letter Carriers’ Food Drive

Every fall the National Association of Letter Carriers and the Rural Letter Carriers Association join forces with the United States Postal Service to host a food drive for the benefit of Roadrunner Food Bank.

In Albuquerque, letter carriers deliver a bag to each metro area home reminding the community about the food drive.

The Saturday before Thanksgiving, letter carriers in the metro area pick up food donations left near mailboxes or community mailboxes.  Post office box customers are encouraged to bring their food donation to the post office the week of the drive.

Volunteers are needed at 11 post office substations in the afternoon to help unload food from letter carrier vehicles and help sort food.  Call 349.8841 to register for a post office location or email givetime@rrfb.org.
