Nearly 1,000 branches have already registered to participate in the 2005 NALC National Food Drive that will be conducted on Saturday, May 14 in all 50 states and U.S. jurisdictions.
Updated coordinator’s packets that include order forms for FREE Campbell Soup/Postal Service postcards for delivery to postal customers will be mailed out in early February to branches that are registered for the 2005 drive.
Branches that have not yet registered for the 13th annual drive should do so immediately or risk delay in receiving postcards and other materials for the drive.
The packets will also include a new 10-minute DVD on the food drive for showing at branch meetings, stand-ups, and at gatherings of other civic, union and fraternal organizations.
As the NALC Bulletin went to press, 961 NALC branches have registered for the 2005 drive. Branches must renew their registration for the 2005 drive to receive the postcard order form and other materials. Again this year, the NALC is offering both English and Spanish-language cards. The kits include separate order forms for each.
Registration forms were included with a letter mailed in December by NALC President William H. Young to all branch presidents.
Questions about the drive should be directed to Drew Von Bergen, national coordinator, at (202) 662-2489, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail at NALC headquarters.
