New Carrier Alert mail program will check on seniors


The Anne Arundel County Department of Aging, the U.S. Postal Service and the National Association of Letter Carriers Branch 4422 are sponsoring a Carrier Alert program for seniors.

Under the free program, mail carriers will notify the Department of Aging if seniors don't pick up their mail.

The Department of Aging will maintain a roster of participants and will send a list of their names and addresses to the post office every week.

If mail accumulates at a participant's home, the mail carrier will notify Department of Aging officials, who will call the person or ask a neighbor to call.

If the attempt is unsuccessful, a department official will visit the participant's home.

For an application, call 222-6825.
