UPDATE: 5/9/14 6:45 PM

Saturday is the 22nd National Association of Letter Carriers Food Drive.

Bill Kirky, coordinator of donations on behalf of the U.S Postal Service Parkersburg branch says it all goes to local pantries and makes a huge difference for people in need.

“Because they're usually desperate by the time they get to that point in order to feed their family, to put decent meals on their table and many times taking care of their children,” he says.

According to Kirby, to them it might mean the difference between going hungry or eating a decent meal.

So whatever you can donate means so much to someone you don't even know.

It's a national food drive.

And some workers right here at home are doing their part to help.

Saturday is the 22nd Annual National Association of Letter Carriers Food Drive.

Friday postal workers picked up food donated by employees of Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield.

It's the company's 10th year participating in the drive.

Last year between the Parkersburg, Charleston and Wheeling offices, employees donated almost 1,400 pounds of food.

You can help out too.

Just leave non-perishable food near your mailbox Saturday for your mailman to pick up.

It all goes to local pantries to help people in need.
