Subject: Recognizing National Thank a Mail Carrier Day
Since 1775, the United States Postal Service (USPS) and the mail carriers who work for it have been integral to our everyday lives. The ability to send postage over vast distances was arduous and slow throughout most of human history, yet we take for granted that mail carriers now deliver most of our modern parcels in under eight days. Certainly, it is more than fitting that we celebrate the important work done by those in this thankless profession, which is why I am introducing a resolution recognizing February 4, 2018, as National Thank a Mail Carrier Day in Pennsylvania.

Aside from delivering our packages, the USPS is also the largest civilian employer in the nation with over 700,000 employees operating out of 40,000 post offices. These individuals handle more than 44 percent of the world’s cards and letters, which includes delivery of over 212 billion pieces of mail every year to over 144 million homes, businesses, and organizations.

Our world runs on open communication, something made possible by the tireless individuals who deliver our mail. Join me in celebrating the work of our mail carriers by co-sponsoring this resolution.
