The final three months of 2015 began with the Postal Service dedicating stamps that honored “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”

Later in the month, CBS introduced “The Inspectors,” a weekly half-hour dramatic series about the Postal Inspection Service.

Also in October, USPS employees kept the mail moving after flooding devastated parts of South Carolina.

The following month, the Postal Service reported total revenue for fiscal 2015 (Oct. 1, 2014-Sept. 30, 2015) was $68.9 billion, up 1.6 percent from one year earlier.

In November, a Pew survey found more Americans have a favorable view of the Postal Service than any other government agency, while the Customer Connect sales lead program hit $2 billion in annualized revenue.

The Postal Service also kicked off its holiday season in November, including expanding Sunday package deliveries.

As December got underway, USPS introduced #PostalProud, an initiative that emphasizes core organizational principals, and deployed 9,000 new delivery vans.

Before Christmas, the Wall Street Journal reported the Postal Service is poised to increase its market share of holiday package deliveries.

The year ended with PMG Megan J. Brennan thanking employees for their hard work. “You help make the Postal Service a tremendous organization,” she wrote.
