Red Cross announces 'Holiday Mail for Heroes' campaign
Thursday, October 14, 2010 - 6:26 am

Every year during the holiday season, St. Lawrence County residents take time to reflect and give thanks for the many gifts in our lives. Whether down the block, across the country or around the world, we gather with family and loved ones to share a “touch of home.”

It’s during this special season that people can also take time to remember the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces, their families, and our nation’s veterans who may be far from home.

Everyone is invited to send holiday greeting cards with messages of thanks and support. Red Cross volunteers and Pitney Bowes will screen, sort and deliver cards to military installations and veterans and military hospitals across the U.S. and around the world.

Visit www.redcross.org/holidaymail for details on how you can send a card.

Once you’ve read the guidelines, mail cards by Dec. 10 to Holiday Mail for Heroes, P. O. Box 5456, Capitol Heights, MD, 20791-5456.

Timely delivery on cards postmarked after Dec. 10 cannot be guaranteed.

If you have questions contact Northern New York Red Cross Chapter at 268-0102 or slc@redcrossnny.com.
