Mail out Holiday Cheer

December 1, 2005

Albany -- The United States Postal Service is trying to make shipping those holiday gifts a little easier on you this year.

Twenty-billion cards and packages will be mailed this holiday season, but you don't have to battle the crowds at the postal office anymore to mail cards and packages. They'll come to you.

You can log onto the postal services website , print out your postage and the letter carrier will pick up your package for no extra charge. You can also call 1-800-ASK-USPS and get the same service.

"They've hit about 19-million nationwide with this program, so it's a really big program that's catching on. A lot of ebay customers and people that aren't able to leave home. It's very convenient for everyone," said Reames Clanton, Retail Supervisor for the South Georgia District of the USPS.

December 19th is expected to be the busiest mailing day of the year, as customers send off packages into time for them to arrive by Christmas Day.

The latest you can mail a package and expect it to get there by the big day is December 24th - but overnighting a package will cost you!
