NALC-National Association of Letter Carriers
STAMP OUT HUNGER 20th Anniversary Food Drive Success!

Community Action team members and volunteers were busy working at the OC Food Bank until late in the evening this past Saturday, May 12th. Imagine two Semis and 20 Bobtail trucks full of food that local letter carriers gathered that day!  Over 222,000  pounds of non-perishable food was unloaded, sorted and organized.

Four hundred local non-profit agencies picked up food from the OC Food Bank. Because of the generous support of our local communities, the pantries are now able to better serve their community.  #communityaction
