‘Holiday Mail for Heroes’ program
For the 2013 holiday season the Red Cross and Pitney Bowes are sponsoring a “Holiday Mail for Heroes” program to distribute holiday cards to service members, a program that encompasses not just troops who are recovering in military hospitals but also service members stationed throughout the United States and abroad, as well as veterans and their families.
The cards should be addressed to: Holiday Mail for Heroes, P.O. Box 5456, Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456.
All cards must be postmarked no later than Friday, Dec. 6.
This program is for delivery of holiday cards only. Those wishing to donate items such as phone cards or military comfort kits should go to the Help Our Troops section of the Red Cross online catalogue at http://bit.ly/bvqohW.
