Holiday Mail for Heroes: Messages from Home
Build your "Hero" team or make a gift on this page and join the American Red Cross Lamar County Chapter's "Holiday Mail for Heroes: Messages from Home" campaign.
Military deployments, distance and hospital stays mean many service members and veterans will be separated from their families this holiday season. “Holiday Mail for Heroes: Messages from Home” empowers you to “give something that means something” by sending personal holiday cards of gratitude and support while raising funds to support Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces programs at Camp Maxey, throughout Lamar County and beyond.
Each "Hero" and corporate sponsor team will consist of five members and will be provided 50 holiday cards. Collectively, teams have a fundraising goal to raise $1000 by encouraging their friends, family and co-workers to sponsor a personalized Lamar County holiday card for $20.
Your gifts and participation provide direct and immediate support for traveling soldiers-in-training through the Red Cross Canteen at Camp Maxey in Lamar County. Additionally, your contribution will help connect local military families in time of crisis through direct emergency communication and help, provide access to financial assistance, crisis counseling, pre-deployment briefings and reintegration workshops.
