FLEMINGTON, NJ --- New Jersey Rep. Leonard Lance (R-7th) announced his district offices are serving as drop-off locations for the Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes Program.

Interested residents should visit either of Lance’s New Jersey offices until Wednesday, Dec.14th with cards of holiday well wishes to be delivered to members of the Armed Services serving overseas.

“Receiving a note during the holiday season will brighten a service member’s day.  It will only take a moment but mean a lot those who are away from friends and family during the holidays.  Last year we received over 500 cards.  I hope we have as great participation this year,” said Lance.
