Connells Maple Lee will collect cards and coloring pages for area military veterans Nov. 11-Dec. 4 as part of the American Red Cross “Holidays for Heroes” program.
Cards may be dropped off at any one of Connells Maple Lee’s three area stores: 3014 E. Broad St., Bexley; 2033 Stringtown Road, Grove City; and 8573 Owenfield Drive, Powell.
Free coloring pages are available at the stores or can be downloaded here:
Meanwhile, the Red Cross offers these guidelines for preparing cards:
- Use generic salutations such as “Dear Veteran” as cards addressed to specific individuals cannot be delivered through this program.
- Include messages of support and thanks.
- Sign your name to them.
- Don’t include letters or other personal information (photos, addresses).
- Refrain from choosing cards with glitter.
