The Yakima office of the American Red Cross is hoping people will take time this holiday season to write a letter to a member of the military serving overseas. Lisa Rhinehart, the executive director of the Yakima Red Cross office says it is called Holiday Mail for Heroes.

Rhinehart suggests participants talk about how they and their families are enjoying the holidays in the Yakima Valley. The letter should be sealed in an envelope and delivered to the Yakima Red Cross office at 302 South 2nd Street. The deadline is Dec. 7th.
