AMARILLO -- The American Red Cross is keeping up with a tradition of comforting soldiers who have to be away from their families during the holidays.
The local office of the organization will be sending out about 600 holiday greeting cards to soldiers all over the world next week and they need some folks to sign those notes.
Steve Pair of the Texas Panhandle Chapter said people can sign as many as they want.
Those cards number in the tens of thousands that will make it to members of the military. The program began in 2006 and has since shipped over 6.5 million holiday cards.
It's a little thank you, that spans the globe, and will help to cheer the people who protect our freedom.
The notes will ship on December 6th so the last day to get cards signed is the 5th. You can drop by the Texas Panhandle Chapter from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. every weekday except for Thanksgiving and the day after.
On December 5th, the Red Cross office will hold an open house for people to come sign cards and meet the volunteers.
