Two national companies are teaming up to send thousands of letters to troops around the world during the pandemic.
Pitney Bowes, a 100-year-old shipping and mailing company, is teaming up with Sandboxx to let people write letters on their phones, which will then be converted to actual letters.
To write a letter, you go to the Sandboxx app on your phone and write your letter and include pictures. It will then be printed out on Pitney Bowes equipment by Sandboxx and shipped the next day to a service member.
Pitney Bowes employees have already sent about 4,000 letters, as many of them are working from home. Sandboxx says it is sending thousands of letters every week to troops this way.
