The American Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes program delivers cards of thanks and support to members of the armed forces, veterans, and their families. This year's program will deliver cards from the local communities to local military facilities, veteran's homes and hospitals, and military family support groups. This is a program built on neighbors reaching out to neighbors.
You can participate by crafting a card at one of our workshops or you can stop by the Information Desk between November 14 and December 1 to sign a ready-made card.
