Stamps.com: we want to do our part to help out our senior communities
Stamps.com has announced a new programme to provide its online mailing and shipping software to all U.S. senior citizens aged 65 and over without its customary monthly service fee (typically $17.99) during the current COVID-19 pandemic crisis.
Stamps.com hopes that senior citizens in regions all over the country will benefit from this program allowing them to safely mail and ship all of their letters and packages without leaving their own homes.
“This pandemic has impacted the lives of the senior citizens of this country more than any other group. We hope that this gesture on our part perhaps might help some of these citizens of our country in these difficult times,” said Ken McBride, CEO and Chairman of Stamps.com. “We want to do our part to help out our senior communities and to make them as comfortable as possible as we all go through this unprecedented time together.”
Using the Stamps.com online postage software, any user is able to print postage for any USPS letter or package, domestic or international, using only their computer and any ordinary printer. Stamps.com users may then simply place the mailpiece or package in their mailbox, schedule a convenient package pickup at their own home, or simply leave it for their mail carrier to pick up for free at a safe social distance.
