Retail Associate Marjorie Daley prioritized community service when wildfires recently threatened the remotely managed Post Office in tiny Bangor, CA.
During a nearby blaze last summer, Daley borrowed a backhoe from her husband’s workplace and created a large firebreak around the Post Office that helped ensure its safety.
Another wildfire in the fall hit even closer to home for the couple, whose residence was destroyed.
Despite their loss, Daley soon returned to the Post Office to begin ash cleanup, get mail that had been held, and restore operations.
“Marjorie exemplifies the courage and determination of USPS to serve regardless of hardship,” said Palermo, CA, Postmaster Joseph Houseworth.
