Charities with pun-inspired names are our favorite, so help the National Association of Letter Carriers and the U.S. Postal Service provide food to the needy. All you have to do is leave a bag of non-perishables (soups, cereals, pasta, canned goods and the like) next to your mailbox before regular mail delivery on Saturday, May 10, and the mail carrier will pick it up and deliver it for you. For more info, contact Stephanie at 349-8678.
