On my list for day 1 of #30DaysofCaring is creating holiday cards for heroes. The American Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes program delivers support to members of the armed forces, veterans and their families.
Local Red Cross offices will collect, sort, and distribute the holiday cards using an events-based approach in their local communities. The website indicates the Connecticut and Rhode Island chapters of the American Red Cross are participating.
This year’s program will deliver cards from local communities to local military facilities; veterans’ homes and hospitals; and military family support groups. This is a program built on neighbors reaching out to neighbors. Click here for more details.
Check with your local chapter to see what events they are holding. Find your local chapter here.
