NILES - The chance to clear out the cupboards for a good cause has arrived.
The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC Branch 775), along with the U.S. Postal Service, the National Rural Letter Carriers Association, the AFL-CIO, the United Way of America and America's Second Harvest will hold the 14th Annual Letter Carrier's Food Drive on Saturday, May 13.
Residents are asked to please leave non-perishable food, soap and paper goods by their mailbox.
Letter carriers and volunteers in Niles, Berrien Springs, Buchanan, Three Oaks, New Buffalo, Dowagiac and Galien will then deliver it to a local food bank.
The nation's largest one-day food drive is traditionally held on the Saturday before Mother's Day.
The 2005 campaign collected 42,745 pounds of food locally and more than 71 million pounds nationwide.
