NAPUS, USPS and Be The Match
If you have not signed up to be a marrow donor and are interested, the Postal Service will cover the 100.00 cost to join the registry.
Be sure to use the promo code "USPS" when registering and it will let you bypass the payment screen. The Postal Service will continue to cover the cost of joining the registry for all employees who are between the ages of 18 and 60.
