Deadline For Sending Holiday Packages Approaching

By  | 

The United States Postal Service is preparing for the busiest day of the year.

Monday, USPS is expecting to handle more than 900 million pieces of mail and they have some ways to make the process a little easier this holiday season.

There are automated postal centers in most post offices, where you can print your own labels and you can avoid waiting for a postal worker to help.

Customers can also ship from home or request mail carrier pick-up. And a new thing this year, there will be a mobile post office, called the Eagle Van that will visit retirement communities to keep the elderly and disabled from having to find a way to the post office.

Here are the locations and times the Eagle Van will be available:


Satelite Hotel 411 Lakewood Cir, Colorado Springs 9 AM - 12 PM
Winslow Court 3910 E San Miguel St, Colorado Springs 2 PM-4 PM


Colorado Springs Senior Center 1514 Hancock Ave, Colorado Springs 10 AM-2 PM
Sunrise Assisted Living Center 2105 University Park Blvd, Colorado Springs 2 PM-3 PM

and for 12/20, 12/21, and 12/22

(TREA) The Retired Enlisted Association 834 Emery Cir, Colorado Springs 11 AM - 3 PM

Deadlines for sending mail out of state is December 21st, for in-state delivery mail needs to be sent by December 20th.
