'Postal Heritage Day' On July 26th!
The 2014 NALC Convention in Philadelphia approved a resolution to observe July 26 as “Postal Heritage Day.” The resolution, introduced by San Francisco Branch 214, noted that the U.S. Postal Service traces its roots to an act of the Second Continental Congress on July 26, 1775, establishing a United States Post Office and naming Benjamin Franklin as the first postmaster general.

The annual Letter Carriers' Food Drive held last month produced record-breaking results!
The National Association of Letter Carriers has announced that the 24th annual Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive, held on Saturday, May 14, collected more than 80 million pounds of food, well above the previous record of 77 million pounds.
And the food drive now has surpassed 1.5 billion pounds since it began in 1993.
The Central NC Chapter of the American Red Cross ( Durham/Triangle area) is in immediate need of volunteer drivers for their transportation program!
Drivers use Red Cross vehicles
for transporting passengers to medical appointments and boxes of
life-saving blood to hospitals. Many of the passengers are elderly,
low-income, and or have disabilities. The Chapter currently has two
retired letter carriers and could use more. Shifts are flexible and
run about four hours. For more information, contact Jeffrey
Isaacson, Red Cross Volunteer Specialist, at 919-489-6541 ext.
