Holidays for Heroes

Send a Touch of Home to Deployed Service Members

LaTanya Adams helps her 5-year-old daughter McKenzie write a note of appreciation to a soldier during a Comforts of Home packing event last year. McKenzie’s card was shipped with others to deployed service members, bringing a touch of home for the holidays.

A simple card can have a profound impact. Show your support with an encouraging note for the holidays to the brave men and women who serve our country.

The American Red Cross New Jersey Region invites you or your group to send cards of thanks and holiday cheer to military members, veterans and their families.

Here are some tips to get you started:

  1. Address cards to “service member” or “veteran.”
  2. Write a note! Keep your message positive and upbeat.
  3. Avoid cards containing glitter.
  4. Do not enclose any items with your holiday cards. Any items enclosed will be removed.
  5. Include your name and where you’re from, but do not include additional personal information such as email, phone number or address.
  6. Do not put cards in envelopes. Individual cards in envelopes cannot be accepted.

Cards for Holidays for Heroes should be packaged and mailed to:
American Red Cross House
Holidays for Heroes
6051 Doughboy Loop
JB MDL, NJ 08640

Cards can also be dropped off at Red Cross locations in New Jersey. Visit redcross.org/NJ.

Give something that means something. Send some holiday cheer to the
servicemen and women who help defend our freedom.
