Holiday Mail for Heroes
About the Campaign:
The American Red Cross and Pitney Bowes are teaming up for the fifth year to distribute greeting cards to members of the United States armed forces and veterans during the 2011 holiday season. People can start sending greeting cards now through December 9, 2011 to the special post office box for distribution to our heroes! Cards can be mailed to:
Holiday Mail for Heroes, P.O. Box 5456, Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456
Families, schools, civic groups, scouting troops, churches, and individuals are encouraged to get involved. One way to do this is to organize a card-making or collection event. This is a great way to bring your group together to kick off the season of giving. Be sure to make your local Red Cross office aware of your event for photo opportunities. For a list of ideas to support the program, please visit: www.redcross.org/holidaymail.
Once the cards arrive to the post office box, Pitney Bowes will screen them for hazardous materials. Red Cross volunteers from across the United States will then sort and deliver the cards to members of the military throughout the holiday season.
