Last Call for Mail for Heroes

When I was a kid, I loved holiday projects. We made paper stockings, Rudolph Christmas tree ornaments, and of course, holiday greetings cards for soldiers and the elderly.

The Red Cross partnered with the Pitney Bowes Foundation to give us an opportunity to relive this childhood memory or share a memory with your own children while brightening the holidays of soldiers and their families. We are collecting and dispersing holiday cards among our armed forces.

The cards give people, young and old, a chance to show appreciation to soldiers and brighten the day of someone who may be spending the holidays alone in a hospital or fighting for our country.

The cards must be postmarked by December 10. The deadline is approaching, so take some time to sit down and make some cards. They can be sent to:
