ALBANY, GA (WALB) - If you would like to send a holiday greeting to military service men or women, the American Red Cross is making it easy for you.

The Holiday Mail for Heroes Campaign is underway.

Cards with messages of thanks and cheer will be sent to GI's and veterans around the world.

The Red Cross will screen the cards, and then sort and package them to military bases and hospitals. Their goal is one million holiday cards.

American Red Cross Southwest Georgia Chapter Executive Director Mari McEwen said "A lot of the service members don't receive any greetings. Or limited numbers. So this way we can hope that almost everyone does."

Pitney Bowes is donating the technology and postage to deliver the holiday cards. The greetings must be received by December Tenth.

Mail cards to-

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