CRAVE Restaurant In Omaha realizes that the upcoming holidays are often a chance for families to come together and spend time with loved ones. However, our brave service men and women may not always get to experience such a simple luxury. For this very reason, CRAVE was honored to spread some holiday cheer by hosting the American Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes Dine & Sign event.
On Tuesday, November 19th, over 150 people attended the event and signed close to 1,000 cards (yes, you read that correctly) saying thank you to service members for all their hard work, which keeps us safe year round. Guests dined on complimentary appetizers, with 10% of additional proceeds going directly to the American Red Cross. Events like these are a nice reminder of how important and rewarding it is to take some time out of our schedules to make the holidays a little brighter for others.
The Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign is a nationwide event that takes place every year October thru December. Tens of thousands of Americans sign cards with personal messages that help to bring a “touch of home” to our troops during the holiday season. The American Red Cross will accept cards through December 6th to ensure they are delivered on time.
The Omaha Dine & Sign event was organized by the American Red Cross young professionals group ClubRed. This group is geared towards socially-conscious professionals who want to help out in their communities. They host numerous fundraising events and service projects throughout the year.
