Sending Holiday Cheer to our Troops


The Red Cross Holidays for Heroes enables Americans to “Give Something That Means Something” this holiday season and other holidays year-round. We are inviting the public to join us to thank and recognize members of the military, veterans and their families .

One way to support our service members is by sending care packages to our Red Cross teams who are deployed in-theater offering all Red Cross services, and provide on-the-ground comfort and build morale. This is a great way to support the Red Cross and the service members at the same time.
