In addition to custard, the Facebook group collected handwritten letters from all over the community. The group received dozens of letters to pass out.
The celebration of the local post office came after a month of national discussion about management of the United States Postal Service and concerns about policies that could disrupt mail-in voting efforts.
Lydia Russo, one of the founders of the Vienna VA Foodies group, helped organize the delivery.
“Today, we are showering the Vienna Post Office with so, so much love!!” said Russo in the Facebook group.
Russo said gift was largely appreciated by the Post Office employees, who hung up many of the letters around their office.
“I truly appreciate everything the community has done, especially the Vienna foodies who have organized this delivery with Kiln & Custard,” said Tyler Miller, a supervisor at the Vienna Post Office, in the Facebook group. “I had them deliver it early today that way every employee (clerks, rural carriers and city carriers) can get one after their hard day at work. I also took all the great thank you cards and put them on the wall so all the employees can see how much the community appreciates them. Also I wanted to say thank you to all of my employees who work so hard everyday. I truly appreciate you all.”
