Virginia Letter Carriers Food Drive Day

5/10/2014

WHEREAS, letter carriers are often among the first people to recognize hunger within their communities, and each year they work to improve this situation by conducting a national food drive; and 

WHEREAS, letter carriers’ daily contact with households in our Commonwealth increases their awareness of Virginians who cannot afford to properly nourish themselves and their families; and 

WHEREAS, on Saturday, May 10, 2014, letter carriers throughout Virginia will participate in one of the United States’ largest annual food drives; and 

WHEREAS, each year, the Letter Carriers Food Drive successfully provides millions of pounds of food for the needy throughout our Commonwealth and nation; and 

WHEREAS, food donated by generous Virginians and transported by letter carriers will be delivered to shelters, churches, and other charitable organizations for distribution to those in need; and 

WHEREAS, I am proud to recognize the National Association of Letter Carriers and the Virginia Rural Letter Carriers Association, who coordinate and help execute the Virginia Letter Carriers Food Drive each year; 

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Terence R. McAuliffe, do hereby recognize May 10, 2014, as LETTER CARRIERS FOOD DRIVE DAY in our COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA, and I call this observance to the attention of all our citizens.
