PUBLIC COMMENTS Public Comments are limited to 3 minutes per person. <br /> A. Norbert Castro, 13914 Tahiti Road, Food Drive Coordinator for the <br /> National Association of Letter Carriers, said on May 15 the people of <br /> San Leandro donated more than 12-1/2 tons of non-perishable food items <br /> to the needy. He said this was a program established by the U. S. <br /> Postal Service. He said the letter carriers know what the families on <br /> their routes need and, since they deliver everywhere, they were in the <br /> best position to collect donations. He thanked the San Leandro Times <br /> for help in advertising the program and local businesses for donations <br /> of space for flyers and food bins. He also thanked Mayor Karp, members <br /> of Branch 214 of the National Association of Letter Carriers of San <br /> Leandro, and all of the volunteers who worked on the program. <br /> Mayor Karp said he had spoken to the Post Master about the food drive. <br /> He said, being new, the Post Master wasn't aware of the Davis Street <br /> Community Center or the Shelter for Women and Children. He said the <br /> Postal Carriers bent over backwards to collect 12-1/2 tons of food. He <br /> congratulated everyone involved. <br />
