Volunteers dig into Holiday Mail for Heroes

Eastern MA News 2012 12/19/2012 Volunteers dig into Holiday Mail for Heroes

Volunteers last week came together for a special holiday cause: mail for heroes.

The American Red Cross has hosted Holiday Mail for Heroes for the past six years - collecting holiday cards for service people all over the world. We’ve received thousands this year, and the cards generated for this program are distributed to members of the U.S. Armed Forces, veterans and their families to show support and appreciation for their services.

The program aims to boost morale and remind troops they have not been forgotten. Volunteers last week helped us sort those cards which will soon be distributed.
