The American Red Cross is asking members of our community to participate in the Holidays for Heroes program this holiday season. Through the Red Cross’ Holidays for Heroes initiative, members of our community may send cards of thanks, encouragement and holiday cheer to members of our U.S. Armed Forces, veterans and military families. Many of these service members are far away from home during the holiday season while others may be in local veterans hospitals. The cards will be distributed to active military as well as local agencies that support veterans, Veterans Health Administration (VA) clinics and hospitals, armories and retirement homes.
Drop off cards by Dec 13 at one of our Cascades Region offices or mail them to the Regional Headquarters office in Portland:
