Postal Service employees often know their communities well. When they see something unusual, it doesn’t take them long to notice.

Just ask Moores Hill, IN, Rural Carrier Gina McCool.

She was beginning her route recently when she spotted a small boy alone in a park near the Post Office.

McCool and another woman approached the boy, who had wandered away from home. After they brought the child to the Post Office, he spotted a relative who was looking for him.

The women reunited the child with the relative, who was relieved to find him.

“Gina got back into her vehicle and began her route as usual,” said Officer in Charge Darlene Herbort. “It was all in a day’s work for her.”
