Hickman High School students collect holiday cards for troops

Saturday, students from a Columbia high school volunteered their time to collect holiday cards for those who have served in the military.

Members of the Red Cross Club from Hickman High School were at the Columbia Mall from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. collecting cards and signatures.

The Red Cross says it has distributed more than 6.5 million cards to troops deployed overseas and stationed locally over the last six years.

Cards also go to families of active members in the military and to veterans in homes and hospitals.

The student volunteers say they had many stop and sign cards today at the mall. They have also been doing card signing drives at the high school and around the community.

Junyi Wu, Hickman High School Senior: “Today we’re here as part of the Hickman Red Cross Club and we’re just running stations for people to sign cards for veterans overseas as part of this campaign sponsored by the National Red Cross called the Holiday Mail for Heroes.”

Volunteers will be at Capital Mall in Jefferson City for another card signing event on December 6th from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
