Six Postmasters who contributed to Business Connect gather at USPS headquarters

Business Connect honorees. USPS recently recognized six Postmasters for their contributions to Business Connect, a program that encourages managers to promote postal products and services.

The honorees are Tammy H. McClanahan (Addison, AL), Teresa A. Puckett (Pulaski, VA), Melissa J. San Diego (Chualar, CA), Laurie R. Vess (Nebo, NC), Kevin E. Vines (Colorado Springs, CO) and Jeramy F. Westhoff (Milltown, MT).

Each Postmaster increased their office’s revenue in fiscal 2018 compared to the same period one year earlier.

The Postmasters’ efforts were commended during a ceremony at USPS headquarters in Washington, DC.

One week left. The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) season ends Friday, Jan. 11.

If you made a contribution during the previous cycle, it won’t automatically renew. To pledge your support again this year, go to the CFC online giving portal or speak to a CFC keyworker to choose from more than 8,000 charities that could use your time or money.

Postal Service employees pledged $6.1 million to CFC member charities last year. The fundraising goal this year is $6.4 million.

The CFC Blue and LiteBlue pages have additional details, including contact information for national and local campaign managers.
