Postal workers food drive on Saturday

The Manteca chapter of the National Association of Letter Carriers holds its 17th National Food Drive this Saturday for the benefit of the needy served through Manteca’s St. Vincent de Paul Society.

You don’t have to hop in your car or lug a basket full of canned goods to the Society’s donation center at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Manteca. Simply have your donations ready by your mailbox for your letter carrier to pick up when they do their regular rounds on Saturday.
Ken Meadows, president of the Manteca union branch 4249, is asking everyone to participate and “donate something.”

“Whether it is the low-income families, the out-of-work, the disabled, the elderly or anyone that just may need a helping hand, the food will stay in our community. They may be your neighbors, your friends or even your relatives. With the price of gas and food soaring, every little bit helps,” Meadows said.

Just leave your donations “by your mail box (as) the carrier will pick it up without postage,” he added.

For more information about the food drive, call Meadows at (209) 823-7671.
