Society partners with Letter Carriers' Food Drive

The Society's St. Joseph Conference in Pomona received nearly 3,600 pounds of non-perishable food recently through the National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger food drive.

This annual campaign allows families along postal routes to leave bags of non-perishable food near their mailboxes on a specific day to help the hungry in their communities. Letter carriers then pick up the bags when they deliver the mail.

Henry Cabrera, president of the Society's St. Joseph Conference, thanks everyone who participated in this wonderful program, especially the U.S. Postal Service for organizing the event.

For Society Conference interested in participating in next year's Stamp Out Hunger food drive, please contact your local post office.
