Letter Carriers Food Drive a Success!

On Saturday, May 11, 2019, the National Association of Letter Carriers lead the Nation’s largest single-day food drive to help fight hunger. This was their 27th year where letter carriers, retirees, and volunteers across America took to the streets, picking up non-perishable items for food banks in their area.

Sharing Ministries Food Bank received almost 6000 pounds of donations in Montrose and started distributing to families in need the following Monday!

We look forward to this food drive each year. It is very typical during spring and summer months for food banks to have a shortage of food and financial donations — we are no exception. The annual Letter Carrier Food Drive is a great blessing to Sharing Ministries because it always generates so much food to help the less fortunate.

Thanks to everyone who gave — and to our wonderful letter carriers for collecting all the donations!
