This USPS worker drops off essential supplies to elderly people on his mail route
Kyle West, also referred to as “Mailman Kyle”, is a USPS mail carrier in Ohio who has lately been delivering not just mail, but also essential supplies like milk and toilet paper to elderly people on his mail route.
He says a lot of the people along his route are elderly and are afraid to go out in public.
“My favorite guy came out and asked me if I could please get him toilet paper. From then I realized that some people just can’t do it themselves,” he said
So, West started sending the people on his route a different kind of letter. It says, “If you are at risk and need help getting essential items, let me know. I will do what I can to help.”
“The turnout has been a lot more than I expected,” West said. “I delivered a little under 400 of those notes and I’ve heard something from pretty much every person.”
He’s delivered everything from milk to toilet paper. But West says he doesn’t want anything in return for his extra effort.
