    I got a letter which says that I have to submit additional documents for my Food Stamps case. it says that I can bring these documents in person to the office. But when I came to your office - it's closed. Will the FAX be working? Who then will pick up documents from FAX machine? Or if I mail my papers? I do not want my case closed because there is no way I can submit additional paperwork Please advise Thank you

    The matter is that I am on recertification stage for SNAP. I sent recertification application and all needed documents to the address you gave me, also I sent application via FAX. After that I've got the letter from your office with recommendation to get the phone interview. I tried, but no result. The call for interview does not work. Your office all time is closed. What to do ?
