Now in its third year, Holiday Mail for Heroes provides Americans with the opportunity to extend holiday greetings and thanks to service members and veterans. Now through Dec. 7, the public is invited to send a “touch of home” through holiday cards that contain messages of cheer and appreciation. Last year, the program received more than 1.4 million cards.
Joining the campaign this year as spokesperson is contemporary music star and American Red Cross celebrity cabinet member Amy Grant. “I am honored and thrilled to be a part of the Holiday Mail for Heroes program,” says Amy. “The service that our military men and women provide this country year-round is invaluable and I feel it is especially important to give thanks for their sacrifices during the holiday season.”
Cards must be received no later than Dec. 7. For reasons of processing and safety, participants are asked to refrain from sending “care packages,” monetary gifts, using glitter or including any inserts with the cards. Cards should be sent to this address:
