Post Office Honors Emmaus with Special ‘Thank You’ Stamp for Continuous Essential Work

The long-standing motto of the United States Post Office of “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds,” was never as true as it was during the COVID-19 Pandemic. That motto, the Post Office found, also applies to other essential workers such as healthcare workers and first-responders that showed up each and every day over the last two years making sure those in the community were safe.  Last Friday, the Post Office honored the work of Emmaus with the agency’s special “Thank You” stamp that was created to honor essential workers for their efforts during the pandemic. Emmaus is the only agency in the city to receive this honor, said Haverhill Postmaster Keith Miller. “We asked our staff and carriers on who we should honor and Emmaus’ name just kept coming up,” said Miller.
