Thank you very much to all the students across the Midlands who helped contribute to our 2012 Holiday Mail for Heroes program! On December 4th, over 6,700 holiday cards created by students from Kershaw, Lexington, Newberry, Orangeburg and Richland school districts were presented to the American Red Cross, Columbia Region at Carver-Lyon Elementary School.
Students across the Midlands spent weeks designing, writing and putting finishing touches on their cards so that they could bring a “touch of home” to our troops during the holiday season.
Colorful cards, including some written in Spanish, were created by students in conjunction with the Red Cross 2012 Holiday Mail for Heroes, a program that has collected millions of holiday wishes from everyday Americans expressing their gratitude to our service men and women stationed around the world.
Time is running out to mail your cards! The last day to send in your cards to the troops is this Friday, December 7th. If you would like to participate, visit www.redcross.org/holidaymail to get started!
Please send your cards to the following address: Holiday Mail for Heroes, P.O. Box 5456, Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456.
