2012 Hunger Hero Award

Branch 9 has been recognized by Second Harvest Heartland because of our NALC letter carrier food drive. The 890,000 lbs collected by Branch 9 carriers equates to about 700,000 meals. Every letter carrier who collected food that day should feel proud that they helped those in need this past year.

The 2011 NALC Food Drive was a huge success with letter carriers and rural carriers collecting a total of 550,000 pounds of food. While carriers off loaded food to various drop-off sites, a small army of volunteers packed huge food containers for shipment to the Second Harvest Heartland warehouse. Congratulations, and a heartfelt Thank You from Branch 9 letter carriers for

your generous help.

Second Harvest Heartland Says Thank You

A wonderful appreciation picnic was held at Kordiak Regional Park (Columbia Heights) for all the participants in
the NALC’s 2010 Food Drive. The picnic was sponsored by Second Harvest Heartland Food Bank and was fully
catered by Unique Dining. Second Harvest Heartland’s Director Rob Zeske thanked and commended Branch 9
letter carriers for their hard work and commitment to end hunger in our communities. Rob also recognized
Dawn Marie Nelmark (Second Harvest Heartland Coordinator), Ginnee Berg from WCCO Radio and Howard
Marcus from the Minnesota Transport Services Association for their generous contributions to the NALC Food
Drive this year.
Branch President Pam Donato gave a bit of our Branch 9 drive history, sharing with us that in our first NALC
Food Drive, our entire Branch collection was 23,000 pounds of food. That has exploded over the years to this
year’s Branch total of 764,000 pounds!
