Family Activity to Celebrate National Thank a Mail Carrier Day
On February 4th, we celebrate National Thank a Mail Carrier Day. It is a wonderful time to thank your mail carrier. They make sure the mail gets through 6 days a week, 52 weeks a year.
We encourage you to use our Thank a Delivery Hero template to show your appreciation of mail carriers who ensure we receive our mail.
Simply decorate the flyer and give to your mail carrier. Take a photo and tag New Horizon Academy with #ColorWithNHA.
