We are still looking for help on nearly all days of the summer. Please contact David Alford by emailing to get on the schedule. Even a day or two helps!

Mail Drops

Please remember NOT to have anyone send anything via UPS, Federal Express, or any other carrier except the US POSTAL SERVICE. Also, never have anything sent directly to our housing site. The school secretary will think it is the new textbook the teacher ordered, and put it in the school warehouse until fall.

Address all mail as follows:

(Member Name)
MAIN POST OFFICE (except Muncie)

*Use the mail drop location for the last two address lines.

2018 Mail Drop locations will be released prior to summer.

Send something every time! And pass these addresses around to friends and family, too! Anything that arrives late will be automatically forwarded to the next mail drop.

Mail early to be sure. Express Mail can provide guaranteed delivery times in a pinch. Consider Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes for heavier "care packs" although Priority Mail generally does not save time over First Class mail. Packages should be shipped First Class, not Parcel Post.
