Occupy Wall Street: You’ve Got Mail

The Wall Street Journal reports, "When the [Occupy Wall Street] group set up camp at Zuccotti Park... they signed up for the mailbox so that supporters near and far could send provisions. Tani Sussman, 33, franchise manager at the UPS Store, rented them the box for about $40 each month."

According to the article by Jessica Firger, the demonstrators receive hundreds of packages from supporters each day. Besides a marching band drum, whistles and noise makers, other items have included blankets, clothes, hygiene products and even big-ticket items like the generators used to power laptops and cellphones.

Packages and letters of support should be sent to OWS, # 205, 118A Fulton St., New York, 10038.
