Brighten the holidays for servicemen and women through the American Red Cross Holiday Mail For Heroes campaign. Messages of thanks and holiday cheer, as well as needed items will be collected to send to service members, veterans and military families. Specific items are also being collected to send to armed forces personnel in Kuwait and Djibouti. Red Cross volunteers will collect the items at the Trenton Avenue Walmart from 9am-4pm on Nov. 7, or drop them off at the Red Cross office by Nov. 13. Service personnel have asked for nonperishable foods (travel or snack size) and all types of hygiene items. From 6-8pm on November 12, get crafty at a card making party, or drop off cards to the Hancock County Red Cross office, 125 Fair St. Monetary donations accepted for shipping costs.
