U.S. Postal Workers Food Drive For LA Cares Is Saturday, Nov. 18


This Saturday, Nov. 18, is LA Cares’ biggest food drive of the year, sponsored by the US Postal Workers.  You can help by placing a bag of non-perishable items in a bag next to your mailbox by 10 a.m. A postal worker or volunteer will pick up the bags and bring them to be sorted and stored.  Boy Scouts will also be at both Smith’s stores collecting food. 

Thank you in advance for your generous donations!  Cash donations are also accepted at any time at PO Box 248, Los Alamos, NM 87544 or at PayPal, lacaresnm@gmail.com.
