Bountiful Post Office Takes Caring (and Carrying) to a Whole New Level

Shelly Johnson moves parcels and flats to the case.

Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) Coordinators and Bountiful, UT, City Carriers Michelle Snapp and Megan Hooley were on a mission to increase carrier participation and have some fun.  The “prize” that garnered the most enthusiasm was putting all CFC donors into a hat and drawing routes for local management to carry.

Supervisors Shelly Johnson and Keith Wells donned uniforms provided by generous carriers.  Postmaster Mike Carey drew Cindy Lewis’ route. When asked what Cindy, a 32-year veteran of the Postal Service, would do while Carey delivered her route, she good-naturedly remarked, “Laugh!  Maybe do a driver observation.”

A day of carrying mail increased management’s sincere appreciation for all that their carriers do, especially for their caring efforts to benefit CFC. The result was a 77.8% increase in participation over last year.

“All the credit for increased employee involvement belongs to Megan and Michelle. They’re the ones who came up with this great idea,” praised Postmaster Carey.

    LOVE IT! This should be a yearly participation from all Postmasters, Supervisors in ALL areas of the Post Office. I think it would higher the moral and let the higher level folks remember again what it takes to do the job.

      I think it’s a great idea. The further away someone gets from a job, the less they remember it. This will get the old juices flowing again. 🙂
