BURBANK — Postal crates are about to get a little heavier, as a food drive benefiting the Burbank Temporary Aid Center is set for Saturday across the city. The 16th annual Stamp Out Hunger campaign, run by the National Assn. of Letter Carriers, is the nation’s largest single-day food drive and aims to collect more than 30,000 pounds of food for the aid center, officials said. The letter carriers, a branch of the United States Postal Service, ask that residents leave nonperishable food items next to mailboxes before mail is usually delivered.

Lolita Harper BURBANK -- Although Burbank residents use mail services every day, few people know how their local post office is run. Before mail ends up in one of the thousands of mailboxes that line the streets of Burbank, it has been through a processing plant in Santa Clarita, where most of it is sorted by route and delivered to the local office. Burbank carriers then sort the rest by hand and head out to their routes, said David Mazer, spokesman for the Southern California region of the U.S. Postal Service.

BURBANK — The United States Postal Service is studying the possibility of shuttering the Glenoaks Station Post Office at the end of the year and merging its operations with Burbank’s main postal station on Hollywood Way. The news comes less than one month after U.S. Postal Service officials announced plans to close the Magnolia Park Post Office at the end of the year. The decision to possibly halve the number of Burbank post offices, from four to two, is part of a cost-cutting measure, U.S. Postal Service spokesman Richard Maher said.

Molly Shore About 400 Burbank bulk-mail users will soon have to travel outside the city to send their letters, bills and periodicals. Bulk mail processed by the Burbank main post office will cease Aug. 15, necessitating a trip to North Hollywood or Glendale post offices, where new automated equipment to handle bulk mailing will be installed. The equipment will also be available in Van Nuys and Canoga Park. "New machines can't be installed in all offices because it's very expensive equipment," said Janie Isaguirre, business mail entry manager for the U.S. Postal Service in Santa Clarita.

If you are planning to purchase your stamps by mail from the post office and expect them to be delivered speedily, forget it. I ordered mine a week ago and still do not have them. After several calls to the local post offices and the mail person, I was told they did not handle this and that it was handled out of the Van Nuys Post Office. I proceeded to call the main Van Nuys Post Office, and I guess no one was home, because no one answered the phone. I then called the 800 number and told them this, and they said there was nothing they could do about connecting me, and I could register a complaint, which I did. They said they would notify the post office by the computer.
