Holiday Mail for Heroes
All Ages, Ends 12/1/14
Share the joy of the season by sending holiday greetings to military service members around the globe. SSLDL is once again helping the community to participate in the Red Cross’s “Holiday Mail for Heroes” program. Once a year, the Red Cross delivers holiday greetings to veterans, military families and active-duty service members at hospitals and installations around the world. The cards and personal messages, sent by tens of thousands of Americans, provide a welcome “touch of home” for our troops during the holiday season. Stop by the “Holiday Mail for Heroes” card station and write a message or sign a card. SSLDL will be mailing them to the Red Cross by 12/1/2014 so they can be delivered by the December holidays.
