WASHINGTON, Nov. 3, 2011 – As evidenced by the host of Christmas decorations springing up in stores across the nation, the holiday season is nearly at hand. While a time of celebration and festivity, it’s also an opportunity to honor service members and their families serving far from home.

The American Red Cross is offering a simple way to show your appreciation for these troops and their families during the holiday season.

For the fifth year, the Red Cross has partnered with Pitney Bowes, a mail-stream technology company, to collect and distribute holiday cards to service members, veterans and their families around the world. This program offers a great way to show your appreciation for their sacrifices and to deliver some holiday cheer.

To participate in the Holiday Mail for Heroes program, simply mail your cards to:

Holiday Mail For Heroes

P.O. Box 5456

Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456
