Delivering Messages of Hope to a Grieving Community

Newtown PO Box 3700 More low res

A temporary Post Office Box was established in the community of Newtown, CT, to handle the thousands of cards, letters, fruit baskets, books, teddy bears, and more from around the world.

The January 2013 edition of Your Postal Podcast provides a look behind the scenes at the task of delivering hundreds of thousands of messages of sympathy and encouragement to the residents of Newtown, CT, after last month’s senseless shooting at an elementary school in that community.

You’ll also hear about one class of mail celebrating a significant anniversary this year.

The podcast concludes with a roundup of postal news, plus details on how you can enter to win free collectible stamp items.

Both the audio and transcript versions of this and previous shows are available at
