USPS Commemorates ‘Date Meets ZIP’ Distinction in University City on Wednesday, September 21, 2022, with Special Envelopes and a Postmark, to Highlight the Once-a-Century Alignment.

From information provided by the USPS: The alignment of calendar dates with ZIP Codes occurs only once a century and in relatively few locations nationwide. In University City, the alignment will be marked by the sale of special commemorative envelopes at the University City Post Office that feature a “92122 Date Meets ZIP” postmark, as depicted above. The special postmark will also be available at that office to cancel mailable items presented by customers.

University City residents are invited to visit their US Post Office to enjoy refreshments, obtain the commemorative cancellation and to purchase the special envelopes, which will be available while supplies last.

“We’re excited and honored to host this rare event,” said University City Manager Yousif Healu. “It recognizes the unique ties between USPS and our community. As outlined in USPS’s Delivering for America plan, we are committed to serving the changing needs of our customers nationwide, from Utica to University City.”

What: Date Meets ZIP; the University City Post Office will commemorate a once-a-century alignment of the date on the calendar–9.21.22–with its ZIP Code–92122.
