Introduction

Get ready to spread some appreciation and gratitude on National Thank a Mailman Day on February 4! This day was first started in 1997 by a group of people who wanted to recognize the hard work and dedication of our postal workers. From delivering important letters and packages, to braving all kinds of weather conditions, mailmen (and women) play an integral role in keeping our communities connected. Let's take this day as an opportunity to thank them for their tireless efforts and make their day a little brighter with some small acts of kindness.
