 Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 8:13 am

Post Offices in St Louis, Central and Northeastern Missouri and Central and Southern Illinois are hosting a special passport event on Saturday, March 9, 2013, to provide passport information to U.S. citizens and to accept passport applications.

This year, the focus is on family travel. Convenient Saturday hours ensure most parents don’t have to miss work to apply for their child’s U.S. passport. USPS Marketing Manager Loretta Tolliver stated, “Many customers find it more convenient to visit the Post Office on Saturday and most of the offices offering Saturday hours have extra staffing to accommodate the extra passport applicants.”
