While Americans young and old participate in the American Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes program, each year some of the cutest cards come from some of our smallest participants – children. If you and your family want to take part this year, make sure to send cards postmarked no later than December 6 to ensure they are delivered in time for the holidays.
All holiday greetings should be addressed and sent to:
Holiday Mail for Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456
Card information and requirements can be found at redcross.org/holidaymail.
The Red Cross also invites the public to share photos and videos of their card signing efforts or their holiday greeting for troops by using the hashtag #HolidayMail on their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Vine accounts. The Red Cross will use the material on its social sites throughout the holiday season.
