Local Red Cross Branch Already Preparing For Holidays

For a fifth year, the American Red Cross Palm Beaches-Treasure Coast Region joins in kicking-off the “Holiday Mail for Heroes” program, a national Red Cross partnership with Pitney Bowes Inc., dedicated to delivering holiday cheer to American service members this holiday season.
The Holiday Mail for Heroes program, launched this week and running until December 9, provides the American public with the opportunity to send a touch of home to the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces, many of whom will be far away from home during the holidays, and our nation’s veterans and their families.
Across the American Red Cross Palm Beaches-Treasure Coast Region the local Red Cross offices will be hosting card signings, card making events, and asking for donations of new holiday cards, which will be delivered to military bases and hospitals, veteran’s hospitals and other locations during the holidays.
The Red Cross and Pitney Bowes will screen cards for hazardous materials, sort and package the cards, and deliver them across the world. Pitney Bowes is donating all screening, packaging and shipping for the program. The Red Cross will mobilize hundreds of volunteers to sort and box cards for delivery to service members, veterans and their families throughout November and December.
Last year, with the help of Pitney Bowes, hundreds of volunteers screened, sorted and packaged cards that were delivered to military bases, veteran and military hospitals across the U.S. and around the world.
“Sending a card is a simple way to show our gratitude for the tremendous sacrifice that our military personnel and their families make every single day on the nation’s behalf,” said Kevin Connolly, Vice President and General Manager of North American Service Delivery, Pitney Bowes Management Services and Vice President, Strategic Transformation for Pitney Bowes. “The holiday season is a perfect time for all Americans to take the opportunity to say ‘thank you.’ We are pleased to join forces with the Red Cross for the fifth year to help make that happen.”
