(Neb.)-Smith's Office Collecting Cards For Soldiers
(Undated)-Congressman Adrian Smith is once again helping to collect cards for the Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes program which gives Americans the opportunity to send holiday greetings and thanks to service members, veterans and their families around the world.
Smith said during this Christmas and holiday season, he hopes Nebraskans will again join with him to show gratitude to the nation’s heroes around the world. He said the Holiday Mail for Heroes program is a great opportunity to support the men and women defending our nation and our veterans.
Smith’s district offices in Scottsbluff and Grand Island will serve as collection points for constituents to drop off postage free cards until Monday, December 2, 2013.
To ensure cards reach their destination, the following guidelines apply:
Ensure all cards are signed. Use generic salutations such as “To American Hero.” Cards addressed to specific individuals cannot be delivered through this program. Only cards are being accepted. Do not send or include letters. Do not include email or home addresses on the cards: the program is not meant to foster pen pal relationships. Do not include inserts of any kind, including photos: these items will be removed during the reviewing process. Please refrain from choosing cards with glitter or using loose glitter as it can aggravate health issues of ill and injured warriors. If you are mailing a large quantity of cards, please bundle them and place them in large mailing envelopes or flat rate postal shipping boxes. Each card does not need its own envelope, as envelopes will be removed from all cards before distribution.
All holiday greetings should be dropped off at either of Smith’s offices or addressed and sent to:
Holiday Mail for Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456
The deadline for having cards to the P.O. Box is Friday, December 6, 2013.
