Holiday Mail for Heroes-Help the Marian Sutherland Kirby Library support our military by sending the American Red Cross holiday cards to distribute to veterans, military families, and active-duty service members. We will be taking holiday card donations (glitter-free, please) throughout October and November. You can donate blank cards or fill out a card and send it to us and we’ll send it to the Red Cross.

There are blank cards at the library if anyone would like to stop by and fill out a card. The cards will be mailed on November 30 so please be sure to have all donated cards in before this date.

According to the Red Cross’s guidelines, please use generic salutations, do not put the card in a sealed envelope, do not include your address or your email, and do not include any inserts.
