Henderson, TN, Rural Carrier Randy Cunningham always delivers for his customers. Sometimes, he delivers the customers themselves.
Cunningham was on his route recently when he spotted a man collapse in front of his house. Cunningham rushed to the man’s side, picked him up, carried him inside and put him in a chair.
This was no small feat: The man is 6 feet tall and weighs 155 pounds.
It turned out the man, a stroke victim, was returning from a doctor’s appointment with his wife when he became too weak to stand. Coincidentally, the couple’s daughter is a Postal Service employee — Imlay City, MI, Postmaster Sandra Berger.
“I am deeply touched and grateful for the help [Cunningham] provided my parents,” said Berger. “My mom has mentioned over the years how helpful he has been in one way or another. I am proud to work in an organization that hires truly selfless people.”

From USPS News Link:
Clarksburg, WV, Letter Carrier Clay Clark was near the end of his route when he noticed a young boy sitting in the grass by himself, crying. When Clark asked the child if he was all right, the boy told him he had gotten off his school bus at the wrong stop.
Since the child’s school was on the other side of town, Clark figured the boy had been sitting there for more than 20 minutes by himself.
Clark told the boy he would be OK, and tried to contact people on a list the boy had with him. When Clark was unsuccessful, he called 911 and stayed until a police officer arrived. The officer took the boy home safely.

COCONUT GROVE, FL (WSVN/CNN) – A postal worker brought more than the mail. He delivered help to a woman on his route after hearing her screams.
Jesus Malvarez, 72, is a mailman who knows his route well, but he’s also being called a hero.
“I help the people. That’s it,” he said.
Though he’s not interested in taking credit, Malvarez’s good deed last Tuesday is stuff of letter-carrying legend.
“But if Jesus was not here, I was in trouble, really, because I can’t do nothing. The pain was so terrible,” Olga Katona said.
