All Volunteer Post Office

"Whether it's the package that has to arrive at its destination on time or the letter that needs the proper label, one California post office is sure to deliver, even if they don't get paid," says NBC4 Los Angeles.

Reporters Kathy Vara and Julie Brayton the post office is "the only one of its kind in the nation" and is staffed entirely by members of the Assistance League of San Pedro.

According to the article, "No one who works there has been paid for their work in 30 years. Instead, money from the U.S. Post Office that would have gone to the employees goes to fund charities in San Pedro. Their work connects people through the mail, but it also connects them to those in their own community." 

Charities include Operation School Bell, which provides school clothes, shoes and supplies to thousands of low income children as well as low-cost dental care for needy children.
