LDS Donation Jump-start's Postal Workers Food Drive
(Letter Carriers Food Drive a Success)
Salt Lake Tribune 14May00 N1

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- The LDS Church helped jump start a food drive that Saturday collected more than 300,000 pounds of canned food. A $7,000 grant from the LDS Church is credited with providing the National Association of Letter Carriers with donation bags that assisted in collecting the food.

The National Association of Letter Carriers led the drive, placing the white bags, purchased with the LDS Church-provided funds, in mailboxes on Friday. Carriers then collected the full bags from postal patrons on Saturday throughout the area serviced by Letter Carrier Branch 111, which stretches from Bountiful, Utah to Lehi, Utah.

Better awareness helpd the Letter Carriers collect more than 50% more than they collected last year.
