CHICKASHA, Okla. – A local loan agency is teaming up with the American Red Cross to help bring a piece of home to soldiers overseas this holiday season.

OneMain Financial is helping out with the annual Holiday Mail for Heroes program, which allows residents to send holiday cards to soldiers, veterans and their families.

From Nov. 18 to Nov. 30, the OneMain Financial branch in Chickasha will provide and send holiday cards from the community to our nation’s heroes.

Red Cross volunteers will then sort and deliver the cards throughout the holidays.

Since 2006, the Red Cross has received and distributed more than 6.5 million cards for members of the U.S. Armed Forces.

OneMain Financial is also inviting the public to share photos and videos of their cards by using the hashtag #holidaymail on social media.

OneMain Financial is located at 718 S. 4th St. in Chickasha.
