The American Red Cross of Tennessee is once again launching its annual Holiday Mail for Heroes Campaign.
The initiative, led by volunteers, involves the collection of thousands of cards from across the country. These cards are then distributed to local service members, veterans, and their families.
The campaign is an effort to encourage people to "Give Something That Means Something" this holiday season.
Churches, schools, neighborhood associations, civic clubs, and any other organization are invited to participate.
Once completed, holiday cards can be dropped off at any Red Cross Chapter office. Volunteers will sort through cards and make sure they're distributed to Heroes right here in Tennessee.
The Red Cross asks that cards NOT contain money, photos, personal information or glitter.
Cards should be delivered to the Red Cross by December 1st to ensure delivery.
