Through the Holiday Mail for Heroes program, the American Red Cross collects cards between October and early December and distributes them at military installations, veterans hospitals, and in other locations. The cards and personal messages, sent by tens of thousands of Americans, provide a welcome “touch of home” for troops during the holiday season.

Each year the American Red Cross provides assistance to more than 2 million service members and many of our nation’s 24 million veterans. It supports military families, military and veterans hospitals, and provides emergency communications across the globe. And once a year, the Red Cross gets the joy of delivering holiday greetings to veterans, military families, and active-duty service members at hospitals and installations around the world.
