LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending the 3rd Branch of the National Associ-
ation of Letter Carriers upon the occasion of participating in the Stamp
Out Hunger Food Drive on Saturday, May 11, 2013

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize and honor
those distinguished citizens of this great Empire State who have devoted
themselves to faithfully serving the best interests of their community
and the needs of its residents; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to commend
the 3rd Branch of National Association of Letter Carriers upon the occa-
sion of participating in the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on Saturday,
May 11, 2013; and
WHEREAS, The 3rd Branch covers the Western New York Region of the
National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC); every year it partic-
ipates in the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on the second Saturday in May;
and
WHEREAS, The 3rd Branch has consistently collected some of the highest
food donations in the nation; it has been known to produce two million
pounds of food alone; this is a testament to the hard work of Western
New York Carriers and the communities they serve six days a week; and
WHEREAS, The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is the nation's largest one-
day food-collection effort; in 2012, the NALC collected over 70 million
pounds of food; and
WHEREAS, Since its inception 21 years ago, the NALC's Food Drive has
collected over one billion pounds of food; the various food items
collected are donated to local food banks and other similar organiza-
tions so they may distribute it to those families and people from the
community who are in need; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that when organiza-
tions of such noble aims and accomplishments are brought to our atten-
tion, they should be celebrated and recognized by all the citizens of
this great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend the 3rd Branch of National Association of Letter Carriers upon
the occasion of participating in the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive; and be
it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the 3rd Branch of the National Association of Letter Carri-
ers.
