Letters Of Hope

My first writing project for my journalism students will be to write "Letters Of Hope" for the Hurricane Katrina victims. And in my quest to find the proper channels to send the letters to, I stumbled on another reminder of how devastating this has been for even the postal service drops. These are things we just don't think of...or we just take for granted.

"Effective immediately, the Postal Service is not accepting any Standard Mail (Letters and Flats) or Periodicals Mail — from any source — addressed for delivery within the following three-digit ZIP Code ranges: 369, 393, 394, 395, 396, 700, 701 and 704.

This emergency action has been taken as a result of severe facility damage, evacuations and other issues resulting from Hurricane Katrina.

We are now formulating plans to address the handling of Standard and Periodicals Mail already in the mailstream and addressed for delivery to these eight ZIP Code areas.

We will update this information as circumstances warrant."
