Cancer awareness shirts, stamp announced

Cancer shirt
The Breast Cancer Awareness Month shirts can be ordered from Sept. 11-17. In addition to the black shirt shown here, a pink version is available.

Shirt tale. Employees can order a USPS-approved shirt to help promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.

The shirt meets this year’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month guidelines, which the USPS Ethics Office developed with input from a team of representatives from multiple Postal Service departments. The guidelines are now available on the office’s Blue page.

The shirt, which features the USPS logo and a breast cancer awareness ribbon, is available in several sizes and two colors: black and pink.

From Sept. 11-17, employees can order the shirt from a special site.

Snowy stamps. The Postal Service will release its Snowy Day stamps Oct. 4.

The stamps, which USPS announced last year, showcase four images based on Ezra Jack Keats’ beloved children’s story, “The Snowy Day.”

The dedication ceremony will be held at the Brooklyn Public Library’s central library. This week’s news release has more information.

Flag reminder. Postal Service facilities are required to fly the flag at half-staff Sept. 11, when the nation pauses to remember the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
