Holiday Cards for Heroes

Take a moment to remember those injured in battle and far from home.

We will be collecting Holiday Greeting cards for the “Holiday Mail for Heroes” sponsored by the American Red Cross. 

You can drop off cards to our receptionists from 8:30am – 8:00pm from now until November 11, 2017.


Please follow these guidelines for sending cards to service members:

  • Sign all of your cards
  • Use generic salutations such as “Dear Service Member.” Cards addressed to specific individuals cannot be delivered through this program.
  • Only cards are being accepted – they do not need envelopes.
  • Do not include your email, home address or phone number on the cards as the program is not meant to foster pen pal relationships.
  • Do not put anything in the cards (including photos). These items can aggravate health issues of ill and injured warriors.

To drop off your cards, or to find more information please contact the Shepherd of the Valley location nearest you.
