The American Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes program delivers cards of thanks and support to members of the armed forces, veterans and their families. This year’s program will deliver cards from local communities to local military facilities, veteran’s homes and hospitals, and military family support groups. The Wallingford Public Library, 200 North Main Street, is bringing this opportunity to adults in the community through its card-making workshops offered Thursday, November 13 from 6 to 8 p.m.; Tuesday, November 18 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.;- and Friday, November 21 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Collins Room. Participants will have the opportunity to create a greeting card and send their holiday wishes to Veterans. The library will supply card-making kits and all necessary materials.
Local resident and artist Doll Barnes has volunteered to assist in this effort to spread holiday cheer to our Veterans. The cards and personal messages created at the workshops will provide a welcome "touch of home" for Veterans during the holiday season. For those who are unable to attend one of the card-making workshops but still wish to send a card, please stop by the library’s information desk and request a ready-made Holiday Mail for Heroes greeting card. The library will have cards available November 14 through December 1 and will deliver all cards to the post office for distribution.
Please join us in sharing Season’s Greetings to our local members of the Armed Forces, veterans and their families. For more information, please contact the library at 203-265-6754 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
