Did you know that the U. S. Postal Service doesn't receive a single taxpayer dollar? It is entirely funded by revenue from the sales of stamps and postage.

The U. S. Postal Service is in crisis. It will run out of money between July and September, at which point its operations may cease if Congress doesn't act.

Let your local postal workers know you care.

Check out these movements and groups who are working to preserve the U.S. Postal Service.

Please, please. Wait a minute Mr. Postman. I’m going to sit right down and write myself a letter and make believe it came from you. I’ve got a box full of letters, think you might like to read. You never liked the letters that I sent. Signed, sealed, delivered, I’m yours. I’ll write home every day, and send all of my loving to you. Return to sender. Address unknown. Rummage thru your mailboxes, take your mail back to town.

Do you plan to VOTE-BY-MAIL?

The Postal Service could play a vital role in the 2020 election as vote-by-mail numbers are expected to rise.
