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.
