YORKTOWN, N.Y. – The American Red Cross and Jefferson Valley Mall are asking local residents to help spread holiday cheer to military members who can’t be with their families this holiday season by sending them cards through the Holiday Mail for Heroes program.
The mall in Yorktown Heights will host a signing event in its center court on Dec. 6 from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m.
“It just takes a moment to sign a card and share your appreciation for the sacrifices made by members of the military and veteran community,” said Mary Young, chief executive officer of the Red Cross Metro New York North chapter.
Red Cross chapters across the country will organize card-making and signing events through Dec. 18, and Red Cross offices will distribute the cards to military installations, medical facilities and veteran organizations in the U.S. and abroad.
