Letter Carriers Food Drive continues Monday and Tuesday

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Postal workers picked up more than mail this past weekend.

They also collected non-perishable food items.

Saturday was the first day of the 23rd annual Letter Carriers Food Drive throughout the nation.

Director of Development for the Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas Vicki Pillow said if you forgot to set your food items out over the weekend, you still have a chance to give.

“Because it was a little rainy in some of the areas, the Post Office is going to go ahead and pick up on Monday and Tuesday this week also,” Pillow said. “So, if you didn't get a chance to put yours out or you were gone for Mother's Day Weekend you can still put it out for Monday and Tuesday.”

Just put any non-perishable items you want to donate in a bag on the ground beside your mail box and it will be picked up by a letter carrier.
