American Red Cross Reminds Public to Send Holiday Cards for Heroes by December 7 Deadline

web posted November 30, 2012

COUNTY – The December 7 deadline is fast approaching for people to send holiday greetings to men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces through “Holiday Mail for Heroes,” an American Red Cross program.

Once the Red Cross receives the cards that are sent in by the public, Pitney Bowes Inc. scans them to ensure safety and security. Red Cross volunteers then sort and deliver them to military installations, in VA and military hospitals and to veteran’s organizations in the United States and overseas.

“As individuals and families make their holiday plans this year, we hope they will remember to send words of cheer and gratitude to the men and women who serve our country,” said Leslie Wilson, Board Member, Aiken Area Chapter. “We hope people will continue this simple, yet very meaningful tradition of giving thanks to those who have sacrificed so much.” 

All holiday greetings should be addressed and sent to:

Holiday Mail for Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

The Red Cross cannot guarantee delivery of those cards postmarked after December 7. Visit redcross.org/holidaymail for a full list of recommended guidelines.

Since 2006, the Red Cross and Pitney Bowes have received more than 3.5 million holiday cards for members of the Armed Forces.

The Red Cross relies on the support of the American people to carry out its mission of service to the 2 million members of the U.S. Armed Forces, 24 million veterans and their families. During this holiday season, people also can support all Red Cross services by making a financial donation at redcross.org or by calling 1-800-REDCROSS. Individuals can also give the gift of life by making an appointment to give blood at redcrossblood.org or by calling 1-800-REDCROSS.
