JHC-CDCA in Nicaragua: Thank you USPS

 You might think that we, here in Nicaragua, don't need the U.S. Postal Service.  But we do:

  • Our quarterly newsletters that you read, share, and post on your church bulletin board, educating about the CDCA's work in Nicaragua, show up via the U.S. mail.  And in the early years, those paper newsletters were the ONLY way we had to share the work here in Nicaragua with you.

  • Your checks of donations come in through the U.S. mail to be deposited in the Carolinas.
  • Those of you with Employer Matching Giving programs, have employers who need to issue paper checks... and they come through the U.S. mail.
  • Kathleen's mother, Peggy, gets her critical medical prescriptions forwarded to her here, during this COVID-19 quarantine, through the U.S. mail to a courier service in Miami that delivers to Managua.
  • And those of us who are U.S. citizens are voting Absentee... yes, we need the mail.

We aren't in the U.S. to let the postal service know we need and appreciate them.  But perhaps you can pass along the message?  

Thank you USPS employees.  You continue to be front-line workers during this pandemic and we are grateful for your service.
