Red Cross delivers Christmas cards to veterans

CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - The American Red Cross headed to the VA clinic on Middleground Road on Tuesday. They walked through the halls, handing out Christmas cards to veterans and staff members.

It's all part of their Holiday Mailing for Heroes program.

"Quite a few of our vets don't have family around for the holidays and are quite alone, so I think it's nice when people come by and show they really care for them and care for the sacrifices they've made over the years," said Harry Robinson, physician manager.

World War II veterans and veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan received cards as part of the program.
