On Saturday, letter carriers throughout Hawaii and across the nation collected food donations to help “Stamp Out Hunger.” The National Association of Letter Carriers’ (NALC) Food Drive is in its 23rd year. It’s the nation’s largest one-day food drive.
For residents, it’s very simple to donate. You’re told to place canned goods and other non-perishable food items in a plastic bag, and leave it next to the mailbox for pick-up.
But for one Hawaii Kai family, their good deed turned sour when their donation was taken… but not by a postal worker.
On Saturday morning, the Fujieki family placed their donated food items in a marked plastic bag and left it right next to their mailbox. Little did they know, the items wouldn’t make it to their destination. Surveillance video shows a man taking the bag of food just before 8 a.m. He was there for less than two minutes and then rode off.
