Holiday Mail for the Heroes program

Posted: Updated:
ROANOKE, VA -

The Red Cross offers you a chance to help make a difference for America's servicemen and women during the holidays.

The organization began its Holiday Mail for the Heroes program this week. You can send holiday greetings and personal messages to America's fighting forces serving overseas.

"We hear from so many veterans and others that are so appreciative to have this little touch of home," says Amy Whittaker, the Red Cross's regional director for public affairs. "Troops who have been deployed and are stationed around the world, they don't have family during the holidays. This really means a lot to them to receive these cards."

Cards will be collected through December 6th.
