Red Cross kicks off Holiday Mail for Heroes

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Students at Zachary Taylor Elementary School are helping make the upcoming holiday season bright for American troops serving overseas.

On Wednesday, they made cards for the soldiers who won't be home for the holidays this year. It's part of a Red Cross effort in Kentuckiana to get 30,000 cards to soldiers overseas.

"It makes me feel happy," said third-grader Turahnna Browder. "They don't get up in the morning to see Christmas, so we send those cards so they can see they have Christmas."

Anyone can contribute cards through December 7 by mailing them or dropping them off at their local Red Cross or by mailing them to:

Holiday Mail for Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456 

Cards received after December 7 cannot be guaranteed delivery.
