Mail carrier’s kind act sets a positive example

By Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:

On a recent Saturday I want for a walk in the neighborhood. I was walking along McDowell Avenue when I noticed a mail truck coming up the street.

There was a house where the people had apparently left town for a few days. They had taken their trash receptacle and some boxes out to the curb a few days early. The wind or something had knocked some of the trash into the street. There were also newspapers in the driveway.

The mail carrier, who was named Jim, stopped his mail truck, shut the motor off and got out. He then proceeded to puck up the trash and put it back on the curb, and also straightened the trash receptacle. He then picked the newspapers up off of the driveway and put them in a secure place. Then he got back in his mail truck and continued on his route.

We need to see more acts of kindness like this.
