Holidays for Heroes

Program Overview
The Holiday Mail for Heroes program is now Holidays for Heroes. This change allows local Red Cross offices to identify and engage in a variety of activities that thank and recognize members of the military and veterans living in our communities. There is no longer a national Holiday Mail for Heroes P.O. Box to which cards are sent. Please contact your local Red Cross office for details.

There is no longer a national P.O. Box for the program. Instead, Holidays for Heroes is being conducted at the Red Cross office in your local community. Check with your local Red Cross for times and locations of events and for opportunities to get involved.
We have made this change for several reasons including:
  • The new structure provides Red Cross regions with greater flexibility to develop the program to meet the specific needs of their community.
  • Fewer U.S. military forces are serving in deployed locations overseas at this time.
