GARDENA, Calif.--Western Jurisdiction President Larry Dozier supports an effort in which letter carriers will collect food items from Gardena residents on May 10.
Dozier, who retired from the Postal Service in 2009, says the effort to stock the shelves of Gardena food banks complements the UM Men Meals for Millions program. “We’re asking UM Men across the nation to support this very worthwhile effort,” said Dozier.
Last year the national effort brought in 74.4 million pounds of non-perishable food and drove postal workers grand total to almost 1.3 billion pounds over the drive’s history.
