Community Shows Up to Support Local Post Office

Singers Glen -- Community members gathered at the Singers Glen Post Office Thursday afternoon as postal supervisors listened to their concerns about the changing hours.

Leaders at the post office are making stops at about 15 places throughout the Valley.

More than one hundred people came out to voice their opinion at the Singers Glen Post Office.

Some community members worried the changing hours would be an inconvenience. Leaders with the United States Post Office said they have lost $25 billion in the past seven years. They said they need to make a change.

Larry Huffman visits the post office several times a week and said, this service brings the community together.

"I think the United States Postal Service is one of the most important services we can get in a small community. It is the basis and heart of the community," said Huffman.

David Schenck, the Richmond Coordinator for the postal service, said this change will save $500 million every year.

Schenck said it is refreshing to see so many community members so passionate about their community postal service.
