Big Spring Post Office is providing an opportunity for residents to help their neighbors via the mail this weekend and it won't even cost postage.
It's the 20th annual National Association of Letter Carriers Food Drive and it takes place Saturday during letter carriers' normal delivery runs.

â€śInstead of post cards, the AARP donated brown paper bags which we will place in everybody's mailbox Thursday,â€ť said Candace Williams, letter carrier and food drive coordinator.
