Bolles Red Cross Club Sends Holiday Cards to US Service Members
Last November, the Bolles Red Cross Club in Jacksonville, Florida sent over 65 cards to US Service Members. Holiday Mail for Heroes was a perfect way for the club to get involved for the holidays. Over 50 people were involved and over half the club set up the tables, paper, markers, and made the amazing music playlist.
Before the successful event, the Club coordinated with the local Red Cross chapter, The Northeast Florida Red Cross Chapter, annually sends cards to veterans in the area or overseas. They agreed on a deadline to send the cards.
Maria Muzaurieta, President of the Red Cross club, explained that it was “amazing to be part of this event and see the difference the club was making as people made cards.” She explained how this event also served as a great way to recruit new volunteers to the Red Cross.
Maria suggests reaching out early to the Chapter to coordinate a shipping time for the cards. Holiday Mail for Heroes was a great way to get members and nonmembers involved in the Bolles Red Cross Club.
