Riverside, IA, Rural Carrier Associate Elijah Hoyt

A rural carrier associate in Riverside, IA, proved earlier this year that Postal Service customers aren’t the only ones who can benefit from the actions of concerned and compassionate employees.

Elijah Hoyt was making deliveries on a snowy day in January when he spotted a fawn trapped in a wire fence alongside a road.

He enlisted the help of a passing farmer, who had wire cutters.

Hoyt freed the animal and continued on his route.
