This is a day to appreciate and thank the numerous men and women that work consistently and diligently to help us send and receive all of our mail and packages. These employees suffer some of the harshest working conditions, yet continue to persevere six days a week.
Across the United States, postal workers walk an average of 4 to 8 miles carrying a full load of letters and packages and delivering them in a timely manner to each one of our doorsteps. Postal workers have to work rain or shine, or should we say rain or snow or sleet or hail or thunderstorms or blizzards or immense heat and/or any combination of the above.
Take an extra minute to say thank you to your postal worker and let them know how much they are appreciated. A simple thank you, maybe a gift or even a handshake will brighten the day of the postal worker who works so hard to service you.
