LOGAN – Saturday is the national Letter Carriers’ Food Drive. That means in addition to bringing you mail, postal service workers are hoping to pick up one or more food items for the hungry.

Aaron Porter is the local mail carrier in charge. He said it is a busy day but the mail carriers feel good about the project.

“This is the 20th year that the post office is doing the national food drive,” he said. “Here in the Logan, Cache Valley area, over that 20 years we’ve collected close to 500,000 pounds of food to be delivered to the Food Pantry.”

Porter said it is extra work, but the letter carriers enjoy it and often bring their children to help out.
