23rd Annual National Association of Letter Carriers Food Drive

2015 Letter Carriers Food Drive

On Saturday, May 9, 2015, Central Florida Letter Carriers will again help Stamp Out Hunger across America with your help. 

This food drive occurs during an important time of the year when most school programs are about to close for the summer, leaving millions of children to find alternative sources of nutrition.
