Story Summary

As part of his long career with the United States Postal Service, John Kelley knows every street in Mountain Grove. After retiring as Postmaster in 2014 he wanted to give back to his community. This former lay-pastor opened up No Rhyme or Reason in 2016, the only store in the area that provides affordable furniture and appliances to its residents. If everyone could do a little more, we could end this poverty, says John.
