A story that will warm

Recently, a local Kansas City dry cleaning chain solicited donations of winter coats for needy children. Janet Jackson, an acting supervisor at the Shawnee Mission, KS, Oxford Carrier Annex asked employess there to drop off any unwanted children's coats with her so the coats could be dry cleaned and donated to local charities.

"I expected we might be able to gather 15 or 20 kids coats -- which would have been great," said Jackson. Instead, the Oxford employees delivered more than 50 coats, which Jackson was more than happy to drop off at the dry cleaners.

"This is another great example of Postal Service employees giving back to the community," said Bill Quinley, manager of the Oxford Annex.

Janet Jackson and Rural Carrier Julie Gerber get ready to deliver more than 50 children's coats to a local Kansas City area dry cleaning chain before Christmas. Employees at the Oxford, KS Carrier Annex donated the coats to the annual Coats for Kids charity.
