MASSENA – During its Customer Appreciation Days Nov. 18 to 30, the OneMain Financial branch at 164 Harte Haven Plaza will provide and mail holiday cards for the community to send messages of thanks and holiday cheer to our nation’s military service members.

The American Red Cross’s annual Holiday Mail for Heroes program is a way for Americans to show their gratitude and best wishes to those who serve our country, veterans and their families, by signing and sending holiday cards.

While in the branch, area residents can pick up a free gift while supplies last and enter OneMain Financial’s sweepstakes to win a $75 gift card.

The holiday cards being offered by the Massena OneMain Financial branch offer the community a chance to join tens of thousands of Americans across the U.S. in providing a welcome “touch of home” to our troops, veterans and military families during the holiday season.

Red Cross volunteers across the United States and on military installations overseas sort and deliver the cards. The Red Cross has received and distributed more than 6.5 million cards for members of the U.S. Armed Forces, veterans and their families since the program began in 2006.

OneMain Financial also invites the public to share photos and videos of their card signing efforts at a OneMain Financial branch or their holiday greeting for troops by using the hashtag #HolidayMail on their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Vine accounts. The Red Cross and OneMain Financial will use the material on their social sites throughout the holiday season.

The public also can connect with fellow card senders through and
