The American Red Cross has a new tradition families across the country can add to their Thanksgiving celebration – taking part in the 2012 Holiday Mail for Heroes program.
While families are together during the holidays, everyone can sign cards which will be sent to members of the U.S. military, veterans and their families. For the sixth year in a row, the Red Cross and Pitney Bowes are giving everyone an opportunity to let the military community know their service is appreciated, especially during the holiday season.
Thanksgiving is a day when we give thanks for our blessings, and a perfect time to give the gift of thanks to members of the military and veterans for their service to our country. Many people have supported the program over the years; continue to share your gratitude with our service men and women this holiday season.
The Holiday Mail for Heroes mailbox will be open until December 7. The Red Cross and Pitney Bowes will then screen the cards for hazardous materials, sort and package the cards, and deliver them to military bases and hospitals, veteran’s hospitals and other locations during the holidays.
The Holiday Mail for Heroes post office box is open and ready to receive cards. Please send all mail to:
Holiday Mail for Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456
There are guidelines people should follow to ensure their cards go through the review process quickly:
