Jackson, MS, Flat-Sorting Machine Clerk Coy Hill stands outside his newly won dream home.

Dream home. Coy Hill, a flat-sorting machine clerk in Jackson, MS, recently won a home through a fundraising promotion for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN.

The 3,100-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-bathroom home is located in a gated community with a clubhouse, tennis courts and other amenities. The home’s estimated value is $487,000.

“I never thought I’d win. I always just bought the tickets to support St. Jude, since it’s such a good cause,” Hill said.

Wellness webinars. The Postal Service will offer two webinars to mark Employee Health and Fitness Month:

• May 18 at 2 p.m. EST:  Women’s Health. This webinar is part of National Women’s Health Week, an annual observance led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that encourages women to make their health a priority.

• May 31 at 2 p.m. EST: National Senior Health and Fitness Day. This webinar highlights an annual observance in which 100,000 older adults participate in activities at more than 1,000 locations.

All webinars are recorded and available to watch through the Wellness webinar library. Nonexempt employees may only participate in these webinars off the clock or during authorized breaks.
