The Red Cross and Pitney Bowes are once again sponsoring the Holiday Mail for Heroes program. This program is designed to collect and distribute holiday cards to American service members and their families in the U.S. and around the world.
It is very easy to participate. Complete your cards and mail before December 9, 2011 to Holiday Mail for Heroes, P.O. Box 5456, Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456.
Here are a few simple guidelines:
Use generic salutations, such as “Dear Service Member”
Send only cards – no letters
Do not include home addresses or email addresses
Do not include any inserts, such as photos
Cards do not need to be in individual envelopes as cards will be removed from envelopes before distribution.
This is a great program for children to participate in.
Remember our service members and send them holiday cards.
