2018 Holiday Schedule for Sandboxx Letter Delivery

Head’s up, Letter senders! We’re well into this year’s holiday season, and while we encourage you to send as many Sandboxx Letters to your recruits, trainees and loved ones as you possibly can, we also wanted to let you know about some date changes that may affect when your Letters are printed and delivered.

In this post, we’ve detailed the holiday schedule for Sandboxx Letter delivery for December 17th, 2018 – January 4th, 2019. Note: this schedule is subject to change, but is based on the latest information that has been provided to us by the mailrooms on base. 


A pro tip from all of us at Sandboxx: we recommend that you send Letters as early as possible in order to ensure proper delivery. In previous years, we have seen unexpected delays for Letter delivery on base over the holidays due to staff shortages, higher than normal mailroom volume, and other unforeseen complications or errors.
