Some of our Elrod ES students participated in Holiday Mail for Heros. We were invited this year to participate by our school district office. Many NISD students did. Each year the American Red Cross provides assistance to more than 2 million service members and many of our nation’s 24 million veterans. And once a year, the American Red Cross gets the joy of delivering holiday greetings to veterans, military families and active-duty service members at hospitals and installations around the world. The cards and personal messages, sent by tens of thousands of Americans, like our Elrod students, provide a welcome “touch of home” for our troops during the holiday season.
