    Dedrick "D" Rose is the nicest, friendliest UPS driver that you could hope to meet. He delivers heartwarming smiles along with your packages. He always leaves you laughing. On Christmas Day, 2012, D climbed a fence to retrieve his son's helicopter. He fell off of the fence and broke his neck, leaving him paralyzed from the neck down. He spent many months in The Shephard Spinal Cord Rehab Center in Georgia, far away from his family and friends in Roanoke Virginia and surrounding areas. D had several surgeries and made promising progress. D is a fighter and will work hard to recover. With his faith and support of friends, I know that he will be able to concentrate on his son and his rehab. With help from donations, D will be able to pay the nurse who takes care of him 6 days a week. He needs a handicap accessible van so twice weekly trips to therapy will be easier. Let's deliver for D.

    UPS Info for UPSers U.S. Postal Service Predicts Record Holiday — FedEx and UPS Will Shine - Yahoo

    The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) expects to ship 15 billion pieces of mail and packages between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve. USPS management claims this will be a record. The number represents a surge of 12% from last year. Although it will not be nearly enough to lift the USPS out of its dismal financial shape, it is a sign that shipping activity across the industry will be strong. That is particularly good news for United Parcel Service Inc. (UPS) and FedEx Corp. (FDX), which expect a good year, and the USPS forecast supports that.
