Holiday Mail for Heroes
American Red Cross - Holiday Mail for Heroes ^ | November, 2008 | American Red Cross

Posted on 11/24/2008 7:17:44 AM PST by yoe

From the front lines to the home front, the American Red Cross provides service members, their families and veterans with the care and assistance they need.

The Red Cross is partnering with Pitney Bowes this holiday season for the Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign. For the second year in a row, we’re collecting holiday cards to distribute to American service members, veterans and their families in the United States and around the world. Pitney Bowes is generously donating technology, resources and postage to make this holiday card program possible.

Our goal is to collect and distribute one million holiday cards to spread holiday cheer and facilitate thanks to these brave individuals and families.

Please send cards to this address, following the guidelines listed below:

Holiday Mail for Heroes
PO Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

I’m saddened by the “RULES” which show that the LEFT WING NUTS have tried to sabotage these programs to spew hate at our troops. That anyone trys to send negative messages is just wrong. I encourage everyone to go to ANYSOLDIER.COM also after sending your 25 maximum cards to this program and do your best with them as well.
