Postal Workers Holding Food Drive For Hurricane Victims
The U.S. Postal Service is holding a food drive Saturday for victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Letter carriers will collect canned goods and other nonperishable items left in mailboxes along their routes.
The donations will be taken to the Food Bank of New York, which serves food pantries in the New York City area.
"There's a lot of families that were affected in the New Jersey-New York area," said letter carrier Scott Martin.
"There's a lot of food pantries down there that are empty, that don't have food," he said.
"Actual carriers are delivering mail in the street and going home to a shelter at night," Martin added.
Nonperishable food items can be left in your mailbox for pickup Saturday.
No glass items will be accepted.
