When I went to the mailbox earlier this week I found a plastic bag.  Empty, but for a purpose.  Saturday, May 11th I get to fill that bag with non-perishable food items for 21st Annual National Association of Letter Carriers Food Drive.

Have the kids help you choose items to put in the bag.  Maybe those canned beets they wrinkle their nose at and will never eat.  Or, maybe their favorite food they want to share with a stranger.

” NALC President Fredric Rolando said. “And our customers who need this food will be the true beneficiaries of this massive, nationwide effort.”

Here's an idea, have the kids go to the neighbors house and volunteer to take those sacks to the mailbox for them.  Extra brownie points never hurt.
