Holiday Mail for Heroes Campaign Update

Holiday Mail for Heroes Campaign Update
This year, it was left up to each individual community chapter to decide, based on the needs in the community and the resources on hand, as to whether or not to conduct a Holiday Mail for Heroes initiative.

As a result of the overwhelming contribution from the American public for our Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign, combined with a continued draw-down in troops, the American Red Cross national Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign has been suspended. This year, it was left up to each individual community chapter to decide, based on the needs in the community and the resources on hand, as to whether or not to conduct a Holiday Mail for Heroes initiative. In Massachusetts only the Central, Western and the Cape, Islands and Southeast regional offices are participating in this campaign. If you live in one of these jurisdictions, please contact your local chapter. For all other Massachusetts residents, below are some suggested organizations supporting military families and veterans where holiday cards are routinely sent:
