For the last 18 years, the National Assn. of Letter Carriers has collected food for local food banks on the second Saturday in May. The Salvation Army Glendale has been fortunate enough to partner with the association locally for more than 10 years.
This Saturday started out like every other year. We had staff and volunteers at each local post office ready to help the letter carriers unload food from their vehicles. It didn’t take long for us to realize this was not going to be like every other year!
At the La Cañada Flintridge branch, the carriers collected three times more food than a year ago!
Across the city, at each branch, the story was the same. The people of Glendale opened their hearts and their cupboards like never before. We were, at times, literally overwhelmed by people’s generosity.
