National Postal Worker Day ~ July 1
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on of [month], repeating indefinitely
History of National Postal Worker Day
National Postal Worker Day takes place every year on July first. It is the perfect time to thank your postal carrier for all their hard work, as well as all of those who work in your local post office as well as beyond. It was founded in 1997 by Richard E. Baker, a former postal working in Seattle, Washington.
Postal workers have always been essential, bus since Covid struck the world with a vengeance they have become heroes to many if not all. Not only did they keep our mail services running they took on more packages than ever thought possible. Even though they hit a huge backlog during the holidays, they did keep everything going even when they were hit with the virus as hard as everyone else. This has brought new and more important meaning to their motto, “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”, for they have overcome much more than that.
Ways to Celebrate Postal Worker Day
Take some to thank your postal carrier or clerk at your local post office. If you don’t see your carrier then leave them a note letting them know how much you appreciate them or a gift card. They are very deserving of the thanks. I know I for one have taken to ordering almost everything online over the last couple of years and I have packages delivered as well as sent weekly. My postal carrier not only seems to always be in a good mood and a very positive person, but she also always takes the time to greet our dog whenever he is outside. She is hands down, one of our favorite people and deserves to know the positive impact she has on our lives.

Here are a few things you can buy for your favorite postal worker. My favorite is the Thank you mailbox sticker. What a perfect way to thank them each and every day.
