Maritz and American Red Cross Bring Cheer to Heroes

December 13, 2017

Nearly 4,000 cards filled with appreciation and well wishes are on their way to members of the military, veterans and their families thanks to the partnership between Maritz and the American Red Cross for the Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign.

Maritz kicked off the Holiday Mail campaign and our Toys for Tots campaign together in November, bringing Retired Master Sergeant (MSgt.) Russell Avery to our Fenton headquarters to participate in both events.

“It was my honor to attend the Holiday Mail for Heroes (as I am also on the Red Cross’ Support for the Armed Forces Committee) and Toys for Tots campaign kickoff in November,” said MSgt. Avery.

“Maritz has been an incredible supporter of the Toys for Tots program since I began working for Maritz Travel in 1980. Although I am no longer with the company, Maritz’ annual support has greatly assisted the Marines of 3rd Battalion, 23rd Marine Regiment to brighten the Christmas of St. Louis-area children. We thank you for your support and look forward to our continued relationship.”

We are proud to be a part of the American Red Cross and Toys for Tots families, and we are incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to send some holiday cheer to those who do so much for this great country!
