Alberta, MN, Postmaster Marlene Van Horn lost everything when her home burned to the ground.But one bright spot was the Postal Uniform Closet, run by Sand Creek, WI, Postmaster Mary Mikula.
Mikula was able to gather enough retail uniforms in Van Horn's size and sent them off so Van Horn could be properly dressed for work..
And finding employees, like Van Horn, who are in need is especially gratifying to Mikula.
Van Horn wrote a note of thanks.
"I got your box of uniforms today. I think it's hard for a lot of people to comprehend when you say you lost everything just how devistating it can be. Everyone I talk to in the Postal Family who asks has been wonderful. It's nice to know that when they ask they really mean it. So again, THANK YOU!"
