Holiday Mail for Heroes program gets underway

American Red Cross

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Even with 85 days left to get in your Christmas shopping, it’s never too early to jump into the holiday spirit.

On Monday the American Red Cross kicked off it’s Holiday Mail for Heroes program.

Volunteers began sorting and counting letters at the Alabama Region Office in Hoover this morning.

The organization says it’s a great opportunity for Americans to express their gratitude and best wishes to those who give so much to our country.

“They’re very happy to be sorting cards because they know the end result is that it’s going to end up in the hands of a service member who is serving either overseas or right here at home in the US.” – Chris Osborne, American Red Cross
