Everyday Heroes cards

Would you like to support and thank local and everyday heroes? You can by purchasing and using “Everyday Cards for Everyday Heroes,” which are being offered at your local Post Office. The U.S. Postal Service currently has a line of patriotic-themed greeting cards for sale.

At $2.95 each, the six cards provide an affordable way to recognize the people who go above and beyond to serve their communities. Better yet: until September 16th, all local Post Offices have a 50% off coupon for the special cards!

The National Day of Service and Remembrance on September 11th and Veterans Day, November 11th give Americans the opportunity to express their gratitude to the everyday heroes in their lives by sending them these cards.

In addition to active and retired members of the U.S. Armed Forces and first responders—firefighters, police officers and emergency medical technicians—everyday heroes also can be medical professionals, public servants, teachers, volunteers and parents, and even………letter carriers.

“Everyday Cards for Everyday Heroes” are available at select Post Offices throughout the nation.
