More than a half-million people work six days a week to deliver mail across the United States. Many walk an average of 4 to 8 miles with bags full of mail through extreme heat, cold, rain, ice, and snow. It’s fitting that one day a year we honor them.
Our industry relies on the USPS and all its employees both on the front line and behind the scenes!
Join us on July 1st and give your mail carrier, your local postmaster or the clerk at your post office an extra Thank You! Maybe leave a bottle of water in your mailbox, a small gift card, a sweet treat or a thank you note!
Any small token would be a ‘first class’ thing to do!!
A Little History
July 1, 1997 became National Postal Worker Day when a Seattle mail carrier wanted to honor fellow employees.
