Special Events

Do you want to help us raise funds in a fun way? Do you want to gather food, school supplies, or toys for families and children in need? These are great opportunities for you, your family, your club, sports team, or work group to come out and feel good about giving back.


Letter Carriers Food Drive

Each year on the second Saturday in May, letter carriers across the country collect from their customers non-perishable food donations. These donations go directly to local food pantries to provide food to people in need, and there are many in Snohomish Countywho need our help. We need your help at the Post Office to gather the incoming food, and package it up to ensure it gets shipped out to the appropriate Food Bank.
