"Holiday Mail for Heroes" ending soon

KNOXVILLE, Tenn (WVLT) -- You have less only days left to send mail to our brave men and women serving overseas.

The American Red Cross has “Holiday Mail for Heroes” mailbox open through December 7.

It's a way to say “thanks” to members of the armed forces, veterans and their families.

While military deployments and hospital stays may keep many of our nation’s heroes away from their families this holiday season, the American Red Cross is collecting and distributing cards that send words of encouragement, gratitude and cheer.

Through December 7, Americans can give something that means something by sending a card of thanks and support. You say thanks; the Red Cross will do the rest.

Send messages of thanks and holiday cheer until December 7 by mailing them to:

Holiday Mail for Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

Pitney Bowes Inc. receives cards at the special Holiday Mail post office box, and screens them for hazardous materials.

Pitney Bowes screens, packages and ships the cards at no charge, and contributes thousands of volunteer hours at sites around the country.

Red Cross volunteers across the United States and on military installations overseas then sort and deliver the cards throughout the holiday season.
